    Since I was the only customer and there were like 4 guys standing around, they were all about helping. Pointed me to Meguiars hot wheels aluminum cleaner. Shit worked...
    Of course, they still need a polish, but that isn't a big deal.
    Well, that's what i thought.
    Your wheels, while looking bad, it's actually just water stains, nothing really nasty.
    Of course, the sooner you remove it the better, but it shouldn't give you too much of a battle...

    That little buffer was needed. But the one I got to tonight started to look pretty good.
    Gonna attack them a little more tomorrow morning and tomorrow afternoon when I can find time.

    Not up close....as I am still not quite done with them yet. Still want to hit them with Mother's Billet.
    The little area where the two pieces connect on the wheels still needs cleaned up. Gotta find something to get in there....

    I have the same rims...bought them last fall and my car sat in a heated garage all winter. I have the same spots. I tried the meguires hot wheel wash with no luck and i tried buffing it with a wheel compund and elbow grease with no luck. Any more ideas??

    I've used a mothers powerball mini and aluminum polish and had great results
    scoop out some polish and smear it all over the wheels and go to town with the powerball, then wipe. Made my welds look like a mirror and took only a few minutes a wheel.

    This alone would not have cleaned up my TTII's.
    But that is my normal routine.
