Wheel Polishing ??

Anyone have any good tips or techniques on polishing aluminum wheels. I just bought a used set of Welds and they need a little polishing to bring them back to life. So please chime in on whatever products, tools, and techniques you use.

Try and get Zephyr or Busche's Polish, and a mothers mini powerball. i polish big rig wheels. that will work great with the shape of those wheels.

I was definitely thinking mothers mini powerball. What's wrong with mothers polish?? I will look for the others at my local parts store. The backside of the wheels are like black. I tried to wash them with soap water and a rag but no luck. How can I clean the backside too?

Well, i went for it. I chose to go with the Blue Magic because I could find it lol and because it was good for all metals chrome or polished, which i liked. So far it has made a big difference. I still have to get the small details polished up but from about 5 feet its night and day difference. Im not sure if this pic is going to do it justice but here it is.
