Wheels

I ran these one winter and the road salt made them look like hell, any suggestions? They are American Racing Atlas wheels and have a coat of clear on them.

Mothers is not a very good polish and plus the mothers ball sucks mainly cause it dont spend fast enough and get the aluminum hot enough to get the polishing done the best thing to do is like he said get some adams and if you dont want to do it by hand trie to find a regular buffer and use that but becarful not to get the aluminum to hot just keep it moving and not sit in one spot the hole time hope that helps.
