Your stone guards, or segment protectors are machine finish stainless steel, and most any wax on them will be seen. The clear coat on the rest of the aluminum is basically paint, similar to the clear coat on a car, so I would try what you have on the rear of the propane tank cover and see how it does.
I like Meguires Tech Wax, a one step liquid wax.
