Brake dust + polished aluminum rims

I have a set of those fake me out 95R 17x9 rims on my car in polished
aluminum. The car was allowed to sit for a period of time w/ some brake dust
on it, and now it seems impossible to remove. The rims are no where near
their original mirror-like shine. Is there anyway to restore them to that
point and still be worth the effort, or should I just buy new rims?

This may be a long shot, but try Eagle 1 rim cleaner....worked wonders on my
brake dust even when scraping couldn't conquer it. About $10/bottle, but
well worth it.

Re: Brake dust + polished aluminum rims

Unfortunatly, I have the same stuff in my "collection" of car chemicals,
along with a few others, but that is actually my favorite one of all the
ones I've tried, and I've used that for a few years...... just haven't used
it enough :)
