      Hey guys, my car has polished aluminum wheels. I see that they have very fine swirl marks (probably after cleaning brake dust). What is the best way to remove them? I would think different process is required then removing swirls from paint.

      Definitely can't see the small scratches from this pic, but these are the wheels in question:

      Are those OEM wheels?

      Yes. They are coated. So I'm guessing I will just do what I do with the paint. Polish, then wax.
