Polish whole rim??

I have a 98 ZX6. I'm going to polish my rims this weekend. There all gray now. I'm just trying to get an idea if I should polish the whole rim or paint the 3 spokes black. What do you think??

you will catch hell trying to ploish the whole wheel. the center is cast and would have to be sanded and smoothed down before it would even think about shining. if you polish, just do the lip and paint the center. not as much work to keep them shiny that way either.

Yeah i agree. Ive dealt with polished rims before and i dont recommend it. I know it looks good but its such a chore to keep them nice.
