i normally use autosol. i did find a couple products for aluminium rims i used to have on an old car that you apply after polishing which help keep them clean and shiny in the long run. can't remember what they are though but there are quite a few different ones if you go check out your local shops for car cleaning products.

Let me know how it works, I tried my Never Dull and it had little effect on the tarnish.

WD40 and steal wool. Gets nicely between the grip grooves for your feet.
