Okay, first let me express my hatred for Wisconsin winters. I HATE THEM. I bought new rims and tires a few months ago, and I just put them on last weekend thinking winter was over. But no, of course it has to go and snow 5 more inches. It snowed Thursday night, and I just got done washing my new rims right now. The salt sat on them for about a day, and they look HORRIBLE. I have Eagle Alloy Series 186 rims. I sprayed some wheel cleaner on them, scrubbed them, and put a little wax on. They still look like crap. There's little black and white spots on them. Not even really that noticeable, but I sure can see it. Is there some kind of cleaner or polishing system or something, anything, that will make them look like new and shine again? I don't care how much it costs. I think I'm done ranting, thanks. :)
