Aluminum rim polish: Mother or Blue Magic or ?

Caution: this thread is not for the Painted Black rim dudes


Aluminum Polish

Mothers or Blue Magic or ???

Blue magic works better I think

30 years ago never dull worked real good but last I remember that stuff is junk cause they changed the formula 30 years ago.

What ya like for polishing up your aluminum rims?

I never used either

Why are they better? .....Do you use a power ball buffer or just by hand?

Seems like since they are designed for silverware type stuff they would not work as good.

Do they have more of a acidic chemical or something in them that dioxides and polishes better with less effort?

You guys need to try Metal Wax. Got turned on to it several years ago by a guy that works on aircraft. Works really good. Collinite metal wax.

I'm sure there's better stuff out there but Mother's it what I've always used.
