Mother's Powerball vs. Black Magic Bullet
 
I want to purchase one of these for the sole purpose of polishing my chrome clad rims after a wash, does anyone have any info on either of these products?

The Bullet looks more durable to me, but the Powerball has been around for a while now.

Go with mothers. I like how it works!

I just use a microfiber cloth. I can polish the rims in the same time as it takes to get the drill out. :)

Brad, that's what I've been doing for the past 8 years(02 Ram, 05 Magnum, 11 Ram) and they always looked fantastic when I was done. You are correct, it doesn't take very long, But I keep eyeing these things everytime I'm in the detailing section at the parts store.

As Paul Harvey would say...."and now, the rest of the story"

I have seen them in the detailing section, seen the TV ad with Chip Foose...so I bought one!

Since then, I have sold it at a yard sale, but have kept my $1.99 microfiber cloth. :)

Just used the mothers powerball and loved it brought my rims that I just purchased used to looking new again

neither....just wash them with a wheel cleaner and dry them off or polish them with microfiber like brad said. I run a detail shop and i've tried the powerball, i was pretty disappointed, its actually pretty abrasive.
