My alloys on my 89 runner look like crap.
is there any way that I can bring them back from the dead?
They are pitted and nasty. I tried sos pads, and some chemicals- no dice.

I will be selling the truck soon and qould like to get them looking as nice as possible.
Any thoughts?

mothers mag/aluminum polish,
big drill motor and a large 6"or 8" soft wheel &

HOURS of hard labor!

if their really nasty, use oven cleaner on'm,
but don't leave it on over 3 or 4 min., cause it'll etch the hell out'a bare aluminum.

I just finished this process a month ago to sell the Enkie's that came on the truck. still only got $80.00 outa e'm.

Here is a real good article written up by Ken.
It involves some work, but the stock SR5 wheels end up lokking better than new.

Other than that, I use Eagle One Billet on my Centerlines.
And <A HREF="http://www.toyotaoffroad.net/tando/pics/centerline.jpg" TARGET=_blank>another <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"></A>

They end up looking almost like chrome for a non coated aluminum wheel.
