Try some chrome polish and some wool buffing pads ( they come in all shapes and sizes)and high speed drill. They will shine again.
You are very close just need the speed of the drill and buffs to bring out the true shine.

Go by your nearest Semi Truck Detail Shop and watch how they do it. There are also tons of YouTube videos on the process. Pretty labor intensive.šŸ›

Yeah I figured by hand wasn't quite getting the job done as I would like so I bought the Mothers Power Cone. We'll see how well it works today.

The higher the speed the better the shine will be. I use my die grinder with wool buffs .I have turned aluminum from ugly into a shine that looks like chrome. A lot of work but looks great. A little polish will go a long way,

I wasted twelve bucks on one of those. I found it to be of little use to me. I hope your results are better.

I have not used that particular product, but I use many of their products on my motorcycles. I have had positive results over a number of years. I use their "Bikewash" exclusively on my Indian Chiefs.

Here are my thoughts about the Mothers Powe Cone and all the Metal polishes I've tried. I have tried Meguiar's Metal polish, Bluemagic metal polish cream, Mothers Mag & Aluminum polish, Turtle Wax polish, and Noxon metal polish I've used enough to know that one is no better than the other. Noxon metal polish was the only one that would remove the hard water spots and the oxidation but I did not try any of the others with the 0000 steel wool. All the others worked about the same and would not bring the shine back to my wheels that I was expecting. As far as the Mothers Power Cone, it did make the job faster and it got in some of the spots my fat fingers would not so I've fairly pleased with it.

Ok....I took the wheels off this morning and cleaned the back side and front again with steel wool and Noxon Metal Polish then I used Mothers Power Cone and hit it with blueMagic Metal Polish cream. I think I'm satisfied with the outcome. Before this venture the passengers side wheels looked like someone dumped acid on the wheels. They were spotty and dull looking. Now all 4 wheels shine the same. I am a happy camper.

Good job ! Don't forget the wax, that will protect all your work you have done. A little wax every month is all you need now.
