Not bad! Those are about the simplest 5 spokes I have seen. I bet they look awesome rolling past you in the sun...

Hey - you have the same tires as me:)

Took a long time deciding which wheels would look right on a Riv. Figured simple and smooth was the way to go. Almost went black, but the Riv was begging for chrome. I love the DW's. My brother is a BMW guy and turned me on to the Conti's.

Thank you. You never know when ordering online, but I couldn't be happier with how they look on the car.

I have tried. I think they are too far gone.
Every time I come across a Riv at the local Upullit they are just as bad. Or broken.

Start with a super fine sand paper and then finish with a mirror finish grit paper and then finish with polish. Nail it with elbow grease and you will get clear corners. I recommend doing this before painting the car if you leave the lenses in while sanding cause you gotta go around the corners.

The right way to do it would be to take them out and polish them obsessively because you love your Riv so much.

But. Ain't nobody got time for that!

I hurr that. I did hit them with the Porter Cable last time I polished the car. Used a cutting compound and polish. Got results, but sure taking them out and gettin down on them would work better.

corner lenses: try Blue Magic metal polish (by hand or machine) followed by Turtle Wax ICE protectant for interiors.

All you need to do is use 1500 wet followed by 2000 wet.squirt a little dishwashing soap into the water to dunk the wet/dry paper.follow the wet sanding with swirl remove compound followed by polish.done.no need to clear coat,only if you must/have to spray something.
