Well....got some mid level wheels and was told that there was no issue running them in the winter time. Well, vendor was dead wrong. The road chemicals pitted the clearcoat on my wheels. They look like they have mud stuck to them that won't wipe off. I tested a little spot, and the only way to remove the spots is with a wire brush, actually scraping down into the metal.

Before I contemplate doing all 4 wheels and respraying them with some sort of poly clearcoat, does someone offer any better suggestions?

I tried searching with no results. Any input is appreciated.
