rim polish/detailer

i want to know whats everyone using to polish their rims with. i have flat black rims (rota subzero) and wanted to make them shine i checked my local autozone and kragen but their all "wheel cleaners".. i think there mainly for tires. but i want something JUST SPECIFICALLY for rims. any suggestions?
make sure you post what it is, price, and where i can get it too

thanks

Yeah, I need a product as well, but for chrome, that I can find locally. Like at an auto parts store. Everything I find as well is for tires, or I dont trust it. My rims are painted chrome, so I think there is a clearcoat on them.

Wenol is by far the best polish.

WAIT!

I missed the flat black part. Wenol is NOT going to shine that flat. I doubt there is anything you can do to make them shine unless you have them powdercoated or painted shiny black.
