Removing oxidation from wheels

Hello all.

I have some beautiful American racing wheels on my jeep but the wheels have some oxidation. Do you guys know of a way to remove oxidation.

TY in advance.

Aluminum polish and a power ball or other type of polisher.

Might wanna read the label on the polish. But most of the American Racing wheels don't have a clear on them.

For oxidation removal Brasso works well, for polishing, a good polish and one of those power ball things in a drill.

Go to O'Reillys and get a little jar of Blue Magic. The stuff works miracles.
