Default Restoring the finish on stock rims

Does anybody have any suggestions on the best way to restore the finish on aluminum mag rims for a 2001 Grand Marquis. I have been having a tough time with them and I'm stumped. Help me please and thanks in advance

Welcome, Curlie39!

If they look like the wheels below, they would be a clearcoated factory aluminum wheel.

Often the plasticized coating on factory wheels can become dull from neglect or from using the wrong wheel cleaner.

Our Plastic Polish, applied with a PowerBall, can some bring some lustre back, but depending on how neglected the finish is you may not see much improvement.
