I recently polished the good old Aluminum wheels on my FJ40 and thought I'd share the easiest and best way.
First off, there is no magical quick way to polish the wheels, it definitely takes effort and time.
I test some products side by side to figure out which is the most effective and time efficient.
Now my wheels look great and are back on the FJ!
I also show some 14.5 wide Alcoa wheels on 35s, that were polished up on a FJ40 and some on my FJ62
Hope this takes your big polishing project, to an easier and faster one with the right polishers.

Does anyone else have these aluminum wheels? Trying to figure out the brand name...
Want to find a 5th for the spare on the rear carrier.

Those were a fairly common style 20 or so years ago. Kind of a Centerline with holes. One of the big tire/wheel retailers should have something like them.
I'm looking for a used wheel that is similar but without the 2-piece riveted look.
I watched your polishing video - good work!
