Polishing My Aluminum Rims

I have the stock aluminum rims and was wondering if I could use a product like Mothers Billet Aluminum Polish to make them shine?

What you need to do to get them to really shine depends on how bad they are to begin with. You may have to start with a super fine sand paper and wet sand them up to a 2000 grit and then polish them. First with a red jewelers rouge, then the white jewelers rouge using a buffing wheel. Then hit them with the Mothers. That'll make them look like new but is somewhat time consuming.
