Default 19 Inch Wheel Shine gone Dull

Well after taking my car to a detailer, it seems the bright chromey shine of my Stock 19's has gone to a dullish color.. Im not really sure though, but it seems other peoples M3 Rims 19's are more reflective.. I bought Mothers Chrome Polish, and some other Aluminum polish products but no luck.. Is it just me or....

autoglym chrome polish, a bit of elbow grease and they'll be like new, I had the same dull finish on the outer edges of my 19s a week ago and having tried everything i was a bit worried using it at first, so I tried a test area and then saw the result I did the outer edges of all four rims(the fronts needed more pressure).

They looked so good that they were almost TOO BLING! I prefer to have my car debadged and as quiet as possible but I have to say the rims have never looked so good having used this polish

Never Dull.

It works wonders.

Hmmmm... I am amazed chrome and aluminum polish works on our wheels since they have a thick coat of clear on them. I use only wax/polished designed for clear coat finish and no problems yet.
