Aluminum wheels

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to keep polished aluminum wheels shiny during the winter months.I spend a lot of time polishing my wheels every summer and they corrode over the winter.I keep the car in my buddies barn but it isnt insulated or draft proof but it is out of the elements and well away from any road salt.I tried waxing them once but this didnt help at all.

I take mine off and store the car with steel wheels and old tires. I keep my alum wheels in my warm house. I polish them once each spring.

Aluminum Wheels

I never thought of switching wheels,I dont have a second set but I will give serious thought to getting a set.Sounds like bracketer has a big block Chevy in that Le Mans,"Theres No Replacement for Displacement" my friend Peter likes to say.I've got all Comp Cams roller gear in mine,including a solid roller cam,And I put a stud girdle on so as not to be adjusting valves too often

People how have bare metal rides, either waiting on primer or driving them that way often use WD-40 to keep them from rusting. I would think it would work just as well with aluminum wheels
