    Question Rust stain on my wheels

    This has been a tough winter up here in New England. I wash my car by hand but only twice this winter. I have now noticed some rust staining on the alloy wheels of my '03 Camry V6. Regular brush washing has not removed it. Any ideas??

    Do you have any pics of the damage? Without seeing the wheels, it's difficult to give you any suggestions as to what to use. One option would be to try something like NXT metal polysh. I have used "0000" steel wool as well with good results.

    Hey,

    My suggestion would be to use Meguiar's #20 Polymer Sealant. Apply with a piece of a 100% cotton Terry Towel. You will need to really work the products into the wheels. Most likely the OEM wheels are clear coated and will respond well to the above product!

    Cheers!
