Eagle One works well. Whatever you do wear rubber gloves or your hands will be disclosed for quite some time. Don't ask me how I know.....

hands will be disclosed

Disclosed? Do you mean DISCOLORED? As in Black from the aluminum oxide being removed?

Once you get a good shine on your wheels, you really don't need to do anything else. I keep my covered when parked at home, that's it. With my previous coach, I would only need to touch them up about once or twice a year. Even then, it's quick because they're in good shape.

Simichrome Polish. Tried this for the first time after searching the web. Works great and removed surface rust with some rubbing by hand in the tight spots. Bought a buffing pad from Harbour Freight for the end of the drill for the larger areas.

Alcoa used to sell a cleaner/polish/sealant combination, but it seems to have disappeared from the market place. I bought some at a rally from Always Shiny Wheels but even they don't have it now. The Alcoa stiff lasted at least a year without covering the wheels.

Grab some ordinary flour from the pantry and toss it onto a towell or straight onto the wheel. Use a detail brush to get it into tight spots. This will remove the black residue much easier than rubbing with a towel.
