Aluminum Wheels

Hi all, I have polished aluminum American Racing Aero 5-spoke Wheels and they are a pain in the @$$ to keep clean. I am practically polishing them every week-week 1/2. I have used Blue Magic Liquid Metal Pollish and Mothers Wheel Polish and still they get nasty too quick. They get smudge marks as well as shreeks and it is hard to get them out. Sometimes I have to go over the same spot like 3 or 4 times to get the shreeks and smudges out. Does anyone know of any type of spray on cleaner where i can just spray it on and rinse it off and they will be nice and shiny again? If not, is there any other wheel polish that is good to where i wont have to polish them as often. Im not really lazy but it takes forever to do just one wheel and then it only lasts for a week. With it getting colder out and 3 months of winter left, Im not trying to be freezing my @$$ off just to polish wheels. If I can find nothing else to do the job right....and last long....I may just buy chrome wheels when spring gets here.
Thanks all, Frank

Try this: Zoop Seal

I haven't personally tried it, but have heard that it is supposed to work. You have to polish the metal and then treat it with the zoop seal sealer stuff and it should stay shiny for a long time.
