Empi wheel cleaning

Hi, I am new to the forum and this is my 1'st posting. I have a 76 2.0 with sand cast 8 spoke Empi wheels. They are
discolored and being cast very difficult to clean. Does anyone know of an effective way to clean these wheels short of glass
beading ?.

Depending on how bad your wheels are and what has caused the discoloration, there are several things you can do.
First, you might want to try some wheel polish called Mother's Mag and Aluminum wheel polish. I think that is what it is called. I just used it on my fuchs and it made them look great! You might have to have them refinished, depending on if you want them to look "perfect."

Give it a try and see what happens. By the way, the stuff costs about $4 for a 3.6? oz. tin of it. It says use sparingly also...
