    That's insane.. I never heard back from the company I requested a quote for, but I'm not in a hurry. If they're anything like those prices I will be doing them myself haha. Only spent $150 on the entire set

    That was my exact thought too. I wasnt willing to spend that much on a polish. Considering a cheap new set would cost about that much

    That's why I considered leaving them as is and just be real with myself haha. Idk, kinda goes with the rough around the edges look of the truck. I'm actually okay with the paint on the wheels. If I fix some of the peeling clear coat I think they'll clean up nicely

    Took me a few weeks per wheel. A few hours at a time. Got them pretty clean, sadly now its time to polish them again
