my rims are in pretty bad shape....I realy was thinking of trying to polish them but not sure what product to use. I have tried mothers and it seems to do nothing!
any ideas?

They are anodized clear, you cannot polish them unless you remove the anodizing. If you do remove it, you will have to keep polishing them or they will get dull pretty quick.

Flitz polish will clean the surface really well. Even if it is anodized, it can still get stained.
