    Autosol is your answer. Comes in a tube like toothpaste. I had some polished rims before and this stuff worked like a charm. Only problem is that you just need some elbow grease. 8)

    Yeah I was going to suggest autosol it works good, I have tried so many when I had polished wheels and they all sucked.

    Another that ppl on here seem to swear by is Flitz, I have seen pics and that stuff looks like it works as good or better then autosol but I have never tried it personally.

    That mothers, eagle 1 etc all suck they work alright but not great.
