Cleaning Wheels

Hello everybody. I have a set of polished aluminum wheels that have been sitting under my back porch for a few months. They have collected some dirt and grime, and was wondering what would be the best way to clean them. Ive tried mothers polish and the powerball, but it didnt really help. Any suggestions?

its seems like no matter how much or how hard i polish, there is still a layer of film on them. Take into consideration that they have been sitting for a long while. I need something stronger
