Postby tph [OP] » Jul 30 2011, 7:19pm

sorry if this has been posted before but i am having trouble getting my rims to shine again.
i bought new wheels in jan this year, they are aluminum and looked good. after a great iowa winter they don't look very good. i washed them, rubbed them tried the meguires foam cone and polish, nothing seems to take this crap off my rims! any suggestions? thanks
