polished lip wheel care

this thread is for all of you with custom wheels with polished lips. I recently ordered p21s multi finish restorer and wheel wax, but much to my dismay it looks as if the p21s did nothing on my polished lip (clearcoat on top i believe). In fact, I think I either brought out the haze scratches and micro marring even more or actually created some when using p21s. This product was recommended by Detailed Image, whom I ordered from, and I must say im not impressed.

Reason I ordered p21s in the first place was because I used eagle one AIO tire and wheel cleaner and put some permanent white spots on one of my wheel lips. P21s minimially got some of them out, but I think the overall luster of the lip is gone.

What do you guys use to take care of your lips? and please dont tell me chapstick

I use the Mothers Polish as well. Those haze scratches are annoying and the polish mostly gets rid of them to a certain extent.

If you got a power drill, try out the "power-ball" from Mothers. I've heard good things about it.
