HRE 840R rims, the polished part, NOT the clear coat center. I got the recommendation from Chris Meyer on Roadfly. I bought it at Pep Boys. Look no further for your polishing needs, this stuff blows the competition away. Has a nice lemon smell, and does not seem nearly as toxic as all the other products.

I just tried this on my stock BMW rims. It didn't do anything. It must not work on all metals.

Metal polish is the last thing you want to use on the OEM wheels - They have a clearcoat on them, and there is the possibility that the polish can rip right through the clear and even marr up/remove the finish underneath. The Billet metal polish is for raw polished aluminum surfaces such as that found on the HRE/Fikse/Kinesis lips without clearcoats.

Yep, you got the best stuff for lips. For your clearcoated centers use this:

MOTHERS CLEAR COAT WHEEL POLISH http://superiorcarcare.net/moclcowhpo.html

Clear-coated wheels will dull with time-the surface is a clear coat, which is just like paint. You polish and wax the rest of the paint on your car, right? Give your clear-coated and painted wheels the same respect with Mothers® Clear Coat Wheel Polish. Designed specifically for wheel coatings, it will remove minor scratches and blemishes and polish out all the little imperfections. Your wheels will sparkle just as bright as your paint-give them some Mothers®' love with Clear Coat Wheel Polish.

On my OEM 19's, this stuff works wonders. The BIZZZOMB!!! Oh yeah, and it does smell great for some reason.

Yep, the Mother's Increible Billet Aluminum Polish is great for HRE lips. I use it on all my client's polished aluminum lipped rims. Jus tbe careful not to use too much or it gets all over the place.
