Default Oxidized rims!! WTF!!??!!

so, im currently pissed.... my stock rims (the 5 spoke style) are oxidized!! How did this happen?!?!??! anyone know a good product to remove the oxidation? I know it is possible and I know of a few products, but I have never used them. I was wanting input from you guys (and gals)before I spend a fortune on crap that doesnt work... thanks for the help...

Is the clear coat on the wheels chipped or flaked if it came with clear coat at all?

if they arent cleared you need to buff em, or use metal cleaner and polish to clear the oxidation up.



My clearcoat was chipped so I stripped it off it was beyond repair but the metal cleaner oand polish worked for my uncles wheels.

Wash it with tire bleach and use turtlewax aluminum polish.
