Re: What do I need to polish down OEM wheels? (Levish)

Buy some aircraft stripper from an automotive store. Spray that on the surface of the wheels and it will eat away the clear coat. Wipe that off and you are ready to wetsand.
Start off with 1500 or so grit. Make your way up to 2000 or 2500 grit.
Take the Mother's Powerball and some Aluminum polish and go to town.
The biggest thing is using the aircraft stripper to remove the clear. Use it per the instructions.

Yes, you can give it a clear coat, but it might not stick well on such a highly polished surface. You would probably need to do a automotive clear coat shot from a gun to stand a chance.
It will not hurt the shine that much if any, but it will help keep the surface rust free.
