Polishing Midnight Silver wheels?

Anyone recommend a good OTC product to polish up the midnight silver wheels?

For my polished aluminum I was told to treat them like my paint, a separate clay bar *Just for your rims nothing else after. So clay, sealant, wax I believe. I also was going to try Adams new quick sealant on mine soon to make it shine better. Hope that helps

They're clear coated, so metal polishes will have no effect.

so what you need to do......is treat the wheels just like any othert painted surface.....because that is exactly what they are.
