Default Polishing wheels

I polish my wheels but like a 2 weeks later they get dirt/shit stuck on them which doesnt come off with soap & water, its more like water stains which makes my wheels not as shiny.

What do you guys suggest to use? I use Mothers Aluminum Polish...whats the proper meathod of polishing your wheels? Also iv been told you can put a wax on them (forgot what its called) and it will keep them nice a lot longer.

anyone?! grip ;D? thanks

Mothers or Eagle One...or Autosol will all make them nice and blingy but unless they're actually chromed, a polished rim will gradually dull...its the pain of a polished rim, however, just a good coat of regular carnuaba wax will probably help to retain the shine as, like the paint, any protection from the environment, especially brake dust and road debris, will help...but again, it won't last forever. just polish, wax, use regular soap and water to clean (spray on wheel cleaners will dissolve your wax) and they should stay shiney longer...or get them dipped ;D Todd

if your wheels have the really shinny alumine finish and they get wet they will get water stains on them if u don't put a clean coat on them that what happened on my buddies atv he was pissed.
