I having a hell of a time getting my wheels clean. Everytime i wash the bike they get worse and worse. Is there something special i should use on them to get them clean? any help would be cool because i have a clean new bike with crappy old looking wheels.

PS the bike is only like 2 or 3 months old

thanks everyone

How are you able to get a buffer in there???
Ok, i have got one side of the front wheel done and it looks pretty good but not good enough for me. I started on the rear and i cannot for the life of me seem to get it looking like the front.... Its got like corrosion or staining on it for some reason? What is the wheel made out of? I thought it was aluminum...
I actually bought one of the powerballs and the mothers billet polish along with some eagle-1 nano polish... All of the products work great. The only problem I have now is that the dealer must have used something on the wheels that made them get "burn marks" in them. I contacted a company that sells a product called Metalwax and they said it is due to certsain products used on anodized aluminum wheels that penetrates or finds tiny holes in the coating. And it makes what they call "burn" marks and there product is supposed to counteract that reaction.
