Cleaning Aluminum Wheels?

So I have series 186 eagle alloy wheels. Over the winter i seem to have gotten a layer of oxidation over the finish and the regular wheel cleaners wont take if off! What do i do?

If there is not a clear coat on the wheels and just polished aluminum, use Mothers aluminum and mag polish.

You can clean them with an aluminum wheel cleaner (I think Eagle One makes one), then polish with an aluminum polish like mentioned above. I've used Brasso, chrome polish, and Eagle One wadding polish. I can't really say which polish is better. At least on my wheels (Eagle Alloy Series 146) it doesn't seem to make much difference which polish I use.
