I would like to know a good place as well. I heard you can clear coat high speed polish now. Is this true?

From what ive heard, getting your rims to be high polished is going to be a bit more expensive if they didn't come high polished from the factory, but if ure just getting the rims repolished, then it's a diff story.

U shouldn't put clear coat on top of the polished lips, less shiny*shiner* Just put wheel wax to keep the dust from stickin/oxidizing the lips, and clean it everyother week. The clear coat will turn yellow and pick up so much scratches/peel off.

get chromies and save yourself the hassles of polishing.

My rims are not chrome, but aluminum colour. There are a few scrapes on it from curbs and stuff. Is it possible to fill in the scrapes? I can take a pic tonight when I get home to better explain myself.

that's true about chromies, but once u curb the chrome lip, its more expensive to fix it than polished lips plus it's heavier and it's expensive to get stuff chromed.

found this link on another post...someone has dropped wheels for finishing and staighting and will report back.
They do offer polishing as well.
Might take my dual 5 spoke's to them if the price is right for refinishing...
