When you stripped the wheels, were they almost polished underneath? I stripped a set of white package '89 sawblades and they were basically polished. Looked great as a polished wheel with some buffing and touch up to complete the look.
Yup. A couple of quicky courses of sand paper (very light) then on to some aluminum safe buffing compounds.holy shit is that just a polished aluminum surface I am looking at ?
i have some buffing wheels and sticks of some sort of compound that Ive used on plastic, but that was on my bench grinder motor. this could be an opportunity to buy some good tools --random orbital polisher etcYup.

A lot of the truck guys around here do it because they can get the unpolished rims cheap second hand and buff them out. There are plenty of videos on youtube if you feel weird about doing it without some better guidance.
