Thanks for your interest in Autosol metal care products. Your wheels are most likely made from aluminium alloy – a soft metal that needs some work in order to achieve a shine. If the wheels are in good condition, shiny with no “rough to the touch” blemishes, then the best product in our range is Autosol Metal Polish # 1824 in 75ml tube form. It will have a mild polishing effect and will not scratch the alloy.
On the other hand, if there is any roughness, and/or only a dull shine, then first use Autosol Metal Polish # 1000, also in a 75ml tube. # 1000 is mildly abrasive so # 1824 is recommended once you achieve the shine you are looking for.
Whilst all auto care stores carry # 1000, Super Cheap Auto is the most reliable stockist of # 1824.
Let me know if we can be of any further assistance.
