My aluminum wheels look like they have hard water spot and oxidation. I watched a video of this being used with 0000 Fine steel wool. It brought the Shine back to the wheel. Anyone ever use this product?

I’ve only used Mother’s aluminum polish. Pretty pleased with it but always looking for other options. Expensive?

I tried Mother's Aluminum polish. It did nothing.

Not sure if you have Lowe's in Indiana, probably so. What I use on aluminum on my Motorcycles is a product called "Aluma Bright", you can find it near where they sell the truck tool boxes. I think a gallon is around $27.00 on Amazon. I hope it works for you. Good luck!

Thanks for the info. I'm stopping by the local Ace Hardware on the way home to buy a bottle of the Noxon for $6.59. I'll see if it works like the video showed.

Well.....Ace Hardware didn't have it in stock so I ordered a bottle. This is what my wheels looks like. Does this look like hard water spots and oxidation to you guys?

it looks like oxidation. I have problems with really hard water , "00" steel wool and "Bar Keepers Friend" cleanser is where I start, I finish with "Mothers and a good coat of wax.

P.S. that Mothers tool that you place on the end of a drill (I forgot the name of it but made out of a foam material) is worthless for wheels. Save your $20.00 for something else..
