Polished aluminum wheels are a uniquely special type of wheel. Polishing refers to the methodical process of wet sanding bare aluminum with sandpaper ranging from a rough grit gradually up to ultra-fine 2000 grit. Once final stages are complete, well-polished aluminum shines with a glossy mirror finish of chrome. While bare polished aluminum may resemble the smooth and even finish of a chrome coating, it looks quite different if one zooms in on its surface – which, is essentially covered with scour marks. Because dirt, road grime and airborne pollutants have a different adherence point on scored, unfinished aluminum, Mothers has created Polished Aluminum Wheel Cleaner to gently remove them without chemically changing or dulling the polished finish.
It’s also designed for the altered chemical composition of anodized aluminum wheels. When an aluminum wheel is anodized, it is submerged in a chemical acid bath where electrical current is applied. Because the aluminum essentially becomes positively charged anode while the current passing through the acid is negative, the aluminum becomes oxidized. This forms an extremely hard, strong coating that replaces the original aluminum on the surface of the wheel. Polished Aluminum Wheel Cleaner effectively removes dirt and leaves no deposits that can cause yellowing on the anodized surface.

Founded in 1971 in the diverse and creative car culture of southern California, Mothers® Polishes-Waxes-Cleaners began with a strong appreciation that customers who see their automobiles as works of art will always appreciate high quality products to clean, protect, and beautify their investments. The company first made refinements to carnauba wax to take it from a difficult-to-use, fussy hard paste to a softer blend with advanced liquid polishes – thus creating the ultimate natural wax product. As automotive paints advanced, Mothers met every challenge with cleaners, polishers and waxes designed to be most effective. A commitment to quality control and customer satisfaction won them a loyal owner base, and Mothers expanded their focus into a full line of premium quality waxes, cleaners, and polishes, for all automotive applications. Today, if you need to create a concours-winning look on chrome, bare metal, glass, rubber, leather, or paint, Mothers® is the only name you need to know.
