Cleaning Up Aluminum Wheels
Ok fellas, I need some help here.
I have a set of 4 used stock wheels that I would like to mount snow tires on.
They are polished aluminum and clear coated with the 8 round holes in them. You know the ones I'm takling about. Problem is, where the previous wheel weights were, there is corrosion/oxidation down through the clear coat and onto the wheel. Not too bad, but just enough to look crappy. The center of the wheel looks shiny, just fine and dandy. I would like to clean them up a bit before mounting the tires. Don't have to be perfect, just look decent and hold up.
I have looked into sending them out for repolish and clearcoat, but when he told me the price, I almost had a heart attack.
I know some of you guys must have the same problem, and I have an idea what I might do, but I'd like to hear what you all have to say, or what you have done.
