What are you using to compound, polish and wax?

I have mother's metal wax but I'm worried about stripping the clear coat on the OZ Superleggra IIIs

My wheels were pitted so i did a complete stripping with Paint stripper. sand down few curb rashes, First pass was 300 wet sand worked up to 600,1200 final 2000. I used 3m rubbing compound with the Variable Speed Polisher,then Mothers aluminum polish and final some WHEEL GUARD MAX COAT WHEEL AND RIM SEALANT.
