Whoa buddy calm down, dont think it was aimed towards me but I'll bite. The link I posted is for a product to remove clear coat. It is evident that those wheels are clear coated and it is flaking/pitting. You cant "Polish" flaking clearcoat. It must be removed first to get to the actual metal that you can polish
. Regardless of the brand of wheel, bare aluminum is bare aluminum and clearcoated aluminum is clearcoated aluminum...period.
The wheels are/can be nice again with some patience. He is going to HAVE to strip the remaining clear off. Then he can polish the wheels up and reclearcoat. OR he can strip them and polish and just leave uncleared but he will have to keep them polished just like I do my wheels.
SO basically Downey has three options:
- Just clean them up and run as is
- Stip clear coat off, polish, reclear
- Stip clear off, polish, leave alone and continue to polish wheels like any other bare aluminum wheel owner (like me and Nate)
