    Question Stains on Painted Wheels

    Help! I have an '08 Silverado with the 20" five-spoke factory wheels. There are yellowish stains in some of the corners of the painted surfaces of the front wheels. Does anyone know what I can use to remove the stains?

    Never tried it on wheels but have had good luck using a clay bar treatment on paint issues.

    Sounds like it might be the clear coat yellowing. Is it just in the corners? Could you post a picture?

    Do you have the 5 Spoke polished rims?? I used to use the Turtle Wax Chrome Polish and Rust remover from Advanced Auto on the 2005 Silverado Rims I had installed on my 1997. Worked great at taking out dark colored areas. Worth a try

    By chance could it be striping paint from the highway or something? Maybe goof off paint remover but I don't know if it would affect your wheels or not. Best thing would prolly be to ask a dealership.
