This is how I polish aluminum rims. I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL.
How did I learn to do this? Just like you are right now-by watching YouTube! Special thanks goes to DC Super Shine for all their videos and demonstrations!
Rims were originally on the back of a semi truck. The driver traded them in for super singles, so I bought all eight. I polished them for my bus, and the extras I polished to sell.
They are available for whoever wants to buy them.

Motorcycle...Polishing aluminum to a chrome like finish
I wanted to chrome polish my frame, swing arm and rims on my 97 yzf600r, but I never polished anything before. I started by polishing a small piece on the bike first and this is how I did it. The end result was pretty nice.. I havn't started the rest yet it, I need a lot more time

Refinishing beat-up alloy wheels
Last week I bought a beat-up set of wheels to use for snow tires for my 1995 Subaru Legacy.
They had been curbed pretty badly and the clear coat had peeled. In this video, I strip off the bad clearcoat, clean up the wheels, and then prime and paint them.
The final result isn't perfect, but for a total investment of around $50, which includes the wheels and materials, I'm very happy.
