Hey guys new to the forum and ive searched online everywhere and needed some help with some aluminum wheels i have. The issue im having is there is a cloudy white film on my wheels i have countless of wheel and aluminum polish creams and liquids and i polish for hours (by hand and with drill attachment) yet the cloudiness doesn't seem to go away and i need help. The rims do not have any type of clear coating on them there just raw aluminum

Any suggestions or advice will help thanks

If they are cloudy they might have a clear coat on them and using metal polish will kill a clear coat. If they are not clear coated they are probably etched. You will need to put some muscle and several polishing steps. On the inside barrel try using #0000 steel wool with aluminum polish or straight rubbing compound and see what that does first. Then work from there. It will be a lot of machine and hand polishing.
After that put a coating on them so you protect your hard work
