Cleaning polished lips on wheels

Wheels (polished lips)are in need of a little TLC and wanted to see if any other forum members here can make any recommendations on the best stuff to use to bring them back to life!

Try Mothers Mag & Aluminum Polish. Use this with the PowerBall, it should bring it back to life.

I got the Mothers and the wheels came right back to life! Did it by hand too, wasn't difficult at all!

Used this product for my DPE's, it was the only product that made them look 95% new again. I would apply by hand and finish with a microfiber to get all the residue off.

No sorry. I will take before and after pics next time I clean them. I agree with block, my wheels look basically brand new afterwards!
