I got the same problem with mine. Its kinda a pita to polish them after winter. Somone on here said spray them with WD40 when winter comes around.

Just wax/seal them. Same as your paint.

Clean them real good before winter and put liquid floor wax on them. I do this on my big truck and works great for me. You have to also do your cleaning year round. All i can say is it was a nasty winter in parts of the country and my wheels are still like new.
