      I have had my CCW wheels for 2 years now. When I bought mine, there was another Viper in town that had them and they always looked like crap, so I was a little worried whether I could keep mine looking good, but it really hasn't been a problem and I don't spend much time on them either.

      I talked to John Purner (owner of CCW) and he said they use an industrial version of Blitz polish to polish the wheels in the factory to the high shine that they get. You can get versions of Blitz polish on-line and in some stores, but I am not using that.

      Here is what I use:

      For polishing, I use Adam's metal polish #2. Gives a much better shine than Mother's Billet and similar products and I have tried quite a few. It looks like they have changed their product lineup a bit. They used to have a #1 and #2 polish and it is one now. Hopefully it still works as good.

      After polishing the wheels, I give them a coating of Poorboy's wheel sealant which seems to do a good job of sealing the surface so that brake dust and other stuff doesn't eat at the finish over time.

      Lastly, I use low dusting brake pads to keep the brake dust off of them as much as possible. I am running the Hawk HPS pads and very happy with them. They dust terribly during the pad break-in period, but then are almost dust free and brake reasonably good as well.

      I really only polish mine a couple of times a year and I put a good 5000 miles or so a year on them.

      Hope that helps,

      Sorry to bother you but saw a pic of your car in the ROE thread. How do you get your CCWs so polished? Do you use something special? I have a set but I'm just not happy with how they look right now. I appreciate any advice.
