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.

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.
