Our Airway Buffing Wheels are made in the USA in our Anaheim, California facility using different mill treatments for different to create wheels of various stiffness levels to be used on different metals. Orange And Yellow are typically designed for use on aluminum while our Red and Pink treatments are designed for use on stainless steel. Our UBM and Flannel wheels are designed for a final finish and can be used for both aluminum or stainless steel.
You use the edge of the buffing wheel to polish?
Yes! This is called edge buffing and the method is often used when polishing metal with an angle grinder, a buffing wheel, and compound. See below:
What size buffing wheel should I use for polishing?
We recommend a 9" Airway Buffing Wheel size for most cases—it offers a great balance of maneuverability without compromising the useful life of the buffing wheel. For greater detail work, consider an 8" buffing wheel. The 10" and 12" (custom size) are often so large as to only to be used by professionals on large flat work, such as a fuel tanker. Businesses, professionals, and skilled users may find that 10" Airway Buffing Wheels are ideal for them because of the longer life of the wheel. Some users purchase 10" Airway Buffs with the intention of wearing them down to 8" or 9" to use for their detailed work, as opposed to buying multiple sizes.
Pairing buffing wheels with polishing compound correctly:
Aluminum Metal Polishing
Polishing aluminum with our airway buffing wheels are typically done in a two-step process. We recommend pairing our Brown Tripoli Metal Polishing Compound with our Orange Airway Buffing Wheel as the first step.
Polishing stainless steel with our Airway Buffing Wheels is typically a two step process. The first step is to pair our red airway buffing wheel with out Black Magic Compound. The second step involves using a Pink buffing wheel with our Yellow Deluxe Compound. For an extra show-shine finish, some use a white buffing wheel with our Blue Rouge Metal Polishing Compound at no more than 2,200 RPM.
How to polish aluminum wheels:
To polish aluminum and stainless steel wheels, pair the appropriate metal buffing and polishing compound (as listed above) with a smaller diameter airway buffing wheel to get into the hard-to-reach areas of the wheel.
The buffing wheel should be spinning at it’s normal speed and the rake should be held securely when held up to a stationary bench grinder or lathe. On a grinder, please exercise caution when raking. We recommend using your feet to hold the rake to the ground and holding the angle-grinder to it.
Raking your buff removes hardened and burned on polishing and buffing compound from the edges of your buffing wheel. Compound build up can reduce the efficiency of the buffing wheel while also creating a rougher surface. If you notice a significant decrease in the residual metal dust produced when buffing, rake the buffing wheel and reapply a small amount of metal polishing compound.
What Polisher/Grinder Goes best with these buffing wheels?

The Dimond plate was dull
Did the 3 step process to polish it up the yellow pad work great
Renegade is worth the money. And the products and accessories i have gotten many times in past and now have proven to give excellent results
it works great
Holy crap!! I came across this buff wheel style of polishing after being frustrated with the final finish of a copper boiler I was polishing using conventional foam polishing pads and liquid compound. I couldn’t get the ultra fine scratches out even using the finest grit polishing pads…. So I reached out to renegade products to explain my needs for a perfect mirror finish on Brass and copper. I was directed to use the white flannel 8” buff wheel with the purple polishing compound. I also purchased the recommended makita variable speed polisher. The results? AMAZING! By far the most impressive results I have been able to achieve and also way faster than other methods. After sanding up to 1200 grit all I had to do was buff with the flannel wheel and purple compound to achieve the final results shown in the photo. The buff wheels even work around the tiny brass and copper fixtures where I previously used a dremel tool. Extremely satisfied, this will be my permanent polishing method going forward.
Wheels worked great! This is my first time buffing a tank and I’d say the results were near perfect. I’ve had previous jobs with power equipment and I am a quick learner however Renegade made this process so much simpler. Great prices too! Definitely purchasing again
My enclosed trailer had been setting outside for a couple of years and it brought my aluminum trim and wheels back to better than new.
These products work excellent
Using them today! Works great.
All I use is Renegade!!! Works great and gets great results.
Works great even for a beginner
These pieces of trim were damn near ruined and looked like someone to a grinder to them. Some sanding followed by the red wheel with black compound brought the trim back to life. I followed with the pink wheel and yellow compound to top it off. These products are outstanding.
It’s a great tool for polishing!
Worked very well with the green rouge polishing out the scratches which were sanded with 1000 grit paper really came out nice
These are great and at a better price than what I've been buying.
Look at that shine!!
The flannel wheel is the perfect last step once over to remove any small marks
The 10inch wheel Works amazing for semi wheels while they are still mounted on my semi. Definitely will be buying more
One of my favorite places to order cutting wheels
Great product!! Will continue to use. 22 years of neglect is gone.
The Renegade products I purchased worked perfectly and I'm very impressed.
Quality wheel, runs nice and true, cuts quickly.
To remove 41 yrs of oxidation, 1st.blue buff blend pad.2nd.marron satin.3rd. Orange with brown.4th. Yellow with green. Your products are outstanding. Thank all of you for coming to work,and helping to make this possible.
It was for my pontoon boat
I bought the orange and yellow buffers and the brown and green compound blocks. They worked amazing getting these dull aluminum rims for my customer very shiny. I definitely recommend these products, I’m a beginner to polishing aluminum and they were fairly easy to use and did awesome!

Great product!! Use them all day every day
Amateur polisher… First time cutting with and using color. Very Happy with the Tripoli, green compound and yellow, orange wheels. Diamond plate is coming along
Used this wheel on the back of the wagon, this was first cut after sanding to 600, I think that wheel works amazing.
They work good.
Was working really good. Only bad part is that it didn’t last long ay all. Center piece broke after polishing one wheel.
I love these orange roughing wheels! Paired up with a good cutting rouge and nothing beats it! Can’t wait to place my next order!
Product speaks for itself.
Professional Knife maker, I use the air wheels to buff out knives.
They work great!!
These buffs are great. Last a long time and very efficient!
Use these orange wheels to cut and they work perfect
I love using renegade products for polishing trucks and also cleaning up the paint on other rigs
I bought the reccomended materials for polishing stainless (red and pink buffer wheels with black/yellow compound) and am really happy with the result. I used a nylon strip disk as a first pass and then went straight to buffing and as you can see the finish is great!
These people are great! Excellent to deal with and thankful for the trustful service.
This was a replacement for the same product. The first wheel was worn out.
This was the second wheel. The first wheel was worn down to nothing due to many hours of buffing.
I bought this polishing kit and tried it on my aluminum wheels. Man I sure was pleased of the results. Thank you for providing great products.
Had trouble with a few Orange buffs. When I let them know they kindly handled the situation promptly and I’m thankful because we gots lots to polish and need these buffs to get the job done. Thank you!
The rake works good on the air buffing wheels.
Provides an awesome finish
Good cutting wheels
Fast service & great products thanks guys
I haven’t tried it yet, but I will very soon,good material
Awsome for aluminum
Great fast shipping
The only products I use for my business.
Awesome product when you double up the wheels on a standard bench buffer. Wheels and rouge work extremely well.
20 years of driving and I had never done any polishing past elbow grease and a towel so I thought maybe it was time to give it a shot. I wasn't even remotely disappointed. It does take a little time to get it figured out and dialed in but the time invested paid off.
Amazing to put a deep glossy shine on the rims.
For some reason I get a better shine with this pad that the orange and save me a lot of time.
Really good cutting pad,I just love the way it works sometimes I don't have to color just because the shine I get with this.
Awsome products and excellent prices!!!
worked well on the open areas of the pontoon.some areas it was to big to get to
Finally found buffs and compounds that work together to get the end result I’ve been after. Renegade is the go-to for polishing products for me from now on.
These wheels cut fast and don't wear down like some of the competition!
Great shine after just one pass with tripoli after sanding.
I discovered Renegade products last year when I was at the Iowa 80 truck stop and I purchased some Rebel Red pro and, Show Shine for the truck i was driving, and after the first time polishing with the Renegade products i was hooked. I had to come off the road to care for my wife so i decided to start polishing trucks and R.V.'s using only Renegade polishes, pipe dream, as well as the airways and clays . The results are outstanding and my customers are extremely happy. I won't use anything but Renegade/Maverick products , the others that I've used don't even compare. I wish I could add more pictures to show the quality of work your products help me accomplish
Works well no complaints
Very stiff airway. Great for a heavy first cut
Bought to replace the originals for the next round of polishing
Bought to replace the originals for the next round of polishing
Very happy with the cutting airway, cuts fast and clean! Will be buying more!
Bought a few airway wheels and compounds from these guys to use with a Makita grinder, and it’s amazing! It’s literally my first time so it’s not perfect but if you saw the before pictures, you’d realize just how good these products are, can’t wait to buy more!
Made my wheels look new after being ran all winter and never getting cleaned. Great stuff
Good in between pad I see people advertising about using it as a 2 step process I don’t like that you can rake the pad really good use a little bit of green bar and it’s still not a good finish you need to finish up with the white pad with the green bar to get a nice clean finish
I like this pad it works good sometimes I wish it was a little stiffer but it works good as long as your prep work is good it’s fine
Best finishing pad I’ve found no need to buy 3 different finishing pads
Easy to use, it's all I use.
Outstanding performance on polishing aluminum to show quality shine
Hands down best products available
Hands down best products available
First time polishing and turned out great
Love your products love how easy your ordering process is and ill be def spending lots more with renagade
Absolutely love Renegade Wheels and tripoli bars!! Mirror finish every time!!!
I use this pad a lot I do not like the flannel pad it makes a mess
This pad works good it’s better that the other brand where they have 10 different color pads and multi color pads that just do the same exact thing
I use these pads for polishing semis motor home wheels and pickup and car wheels and parts they work good they lose their stiffness after a while but they are good still just have to sand finer
Worked great, brought my still to a mirror shine sorry but I didn't take no picks
Thank you great product
