I have been trying to figure out what i should do, go black or stay with what i have?? let me know what you think, and if anyone can photoshop my wheels to black it would be awesome! (these pics are before my mods, and thats not me in the pic its the guy i bought it from, i took these pictures the day i bought the truck at the guys house)

i like the aluminum on your truck. polish em up nice and seal em and they are good to go! black seems like too much contrast on the white - maybe a smoked finish would look good. either way, truck looks good!

I'd go with bright, polished aluminum.

Did you ask them to try to do a photoshop with them polished. They might be able to do that, i've seen them do some cool stuff.

I use the mothers power ball and the polishing compound they have if real tarnished will have to use super fine sand paper first.

light steel wool works on badly tarnished wheels, too. i second the mothers powerball - probably the best thing ever made! i never use sandpaper, but i would imagine if you just wanted to remove oxidation then 800-1000 grit would work.

Yeah I would start with the highest grit you can find but try the other stuff first.

I use PPC Alluminum polish. Works for fixing faded headlights too.

Faded headlights

And my dads rims, trim, and bumpers.

My roll bar took an hour or so. The headlight was 10 minutes, and the red truck as half hour.
