    Aluminum wheels - cant get them clean....

    I recently bought back my 92 eldo. 8 years after I sold it, the new owner took good car of the car with exception of the american racing polished aluminum wheels, when I first had the car I always kept wheels nice and shiny, they now appear to have white water spots on them that I cant get out,
    I have tried a number of products to remove the spots, I then took it to a car wash and washed them with the "wand", they looked worse than ever,
    I have had the most sucess with a product called "never dull", are they in fact water marks?, any suggestions? Thanks

    If they are uncoated polished aluminum the best product for them, hands down, is Mothers aluminum and mag polish. Put some one a rag and buff away.

    I bought the product, it did a fantastic job of cleaning up my wheels, not even that hard to apply, thanks again.

    I have the same problem with my cts, I've used the mother's product before with no result. Did you use a powerball or anything to that effect?
