    What does this mean? Sorry, bit of a no obligation to this.

    This is good I guess, but I don't understand what dips means

    What's the difference? I'm just looking at an entry level rotary polisher with a basic polish kit from the polishing store. Already ordered to be honest. :confused:


    Great rims on your page though dips.

    No all done by hand with a rotary on a work bench that's why I take so long lol. But using the rotary helps not too round off the sharp edges

    You can use a file first if you can get into it with the tyre on if not just use wet and dry paper as said above

    That's exactly the finish I want for mine when they get refurbed. Where did you get that done if you don't mind me asking?
