Best aluminum polish

what is the best polish for aluminum wheels? These are refinished wheels so there is no clear coat on them.

autosol is good I used to use it. But it's all elbow grease. If they are really tarnished a good way to get them back to a dull finish is using a polishing compound that isn't to abbrassive. Followed by autosol to bring up the shine. has to be done in two steps. have plenty of clean soft cloths to buff up the aluminum. microfibre is good.

I have to do mine too..have fun.
