18" Mickey Tomphson Classic locks

Whats the best cleaning product for them wheels? They don't have that nice shine to them and alittle stained, wanting to get them looking like new, anything I can use? Tried simple green on them, did't work to good.

use something called bar keepers help (think thats what its called) its a powder. i always used it when i used to have my old truck, always got rid of the pitting easily and brought back most the shine. you can always polish afterwards.

My Bf told me there is an acid that you can use to clean wheels too. im not sure what the name of it is i can find out, but you spray the wheel down with a mist and spray on this acid and immediatly scrub it down with a medium stiffness brush, not too hard so you dont scuff the wheel, then rinse it off pretty quick. you cant let the acid sit on there too long cus it will literally burn the wheel. then you buff them with that blue magic and theyre like brand new. ill find out what the name of that acid is incase you wanna try it.
