hey guys so the previous owner must of never washed the rims. i have some stains on the inside of the rims and also on the face. they are like quite specs that seem to be stuck on. i have tried p21s wheel gel and it worked great and removed lots of stains and all the dirt but i think i need something just a bit stronger to get the pit marks off the rims. it seems that only the back rims have these white specs. would possibly using Mothers Mag Wheel polish help get these pit marks out. I've scrubbed and scrubbed but nothing seems to lift these. i will try anything to get these rims back to original

thanks

any suggestions would be great

The rims have to be redone man. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Pit marks are not coming out.

Get the rims redone. Then use sonax, p21s, or griots wheel cleaner to clean the rims.

Dont use anything strong on the clearcoat. Megs wheel polish will damage it.

^ agreed. Think a powdercoat would be your best bet. Pit marks are not coming out, however swirls and such can be polished out of clearcoated wheels just like paint. Best wheel stuff out there now is Sonax, its expensive but does a good job. For time-to-time cleaning look up Adams green wheel cleaner, cheaper but gets the job done fairly well. Also id advise to clay the wheels after and seal them cause then you can lay down a nice layer of protection.

Yup swirls can come out. Clay the wheels, use Megs 105, then 205, and after that, a wax of your choice.


But I suggest only do this if you have the 06-08 wheels w/o the durabrite coating. That durabrite coating is very sensitive. On those only thing i would use is a wheel sealant.

thanks for the all the comments guys, i do have a 08 so I'm going to try and clean them up as best i can and then clay them and use the products suggested and then make a decision to powder coat or not in the spring.

thanks again

I havent tried it yet but have been reading up on a product called brown royal. look it up seems like it should be pretty good stuff. if anyone has tried it let me know what you think.

I actually want to try this stuff.

I usually use soap and water for my wheels with a sponge, and Sonax for when my wheels are really dirty.

I want to get away from Sonax because at $99.99 for 5 liters, it's pretty expensive.
