Ok so I just got an s10 with some solid aluminum wheels and i like the wheels however the rear ones are newer because when we cleaned all of them up threw some wax on and they still look dull and the rear shined up a little bit (just used regular wax to see if they would even shine before I used aluminum polish) do I need to strip them and re clear them or what can I do?

Sounds like the clear coat is failing. No amount of polish is going to help. Best bet is to strip then polish. It's a lot of work.

If the coating is good without signs of oxiding underneath then try solutions that you'd use on paint first, like rubbing compound by hand or a rotary polisher. The coating on the fronts might be tarnished by brake dust.
