Powder Coated Rim Stains

It seems my powder coated rims might have gotten stained after going to the car wash? Anyone with experience on how I can remove streaks and spots?? Thanks

have you tried any type of wheel cleaner? I would try maybe something like Chemical Guy's Diablo wheel cleaner with a brush and see if that works

And when you get them cleaned up, put on a protective coating, such as Wheel Wax, so that the spots don't come back. In fact, waxing your wheels might just make the spots disappear.

Diablo wheel cleaner is nice for light stuff. Other then that not good at all for the claimed break dust cleaning.

the Diablo wheel cleaner does great on heavy stuff too! quite a few members here have posted their results quite a few years back when this forum was poppin'. I don't have the brake dust issue since every year I wash my wheels with CG's Citrus cleaner to remove the old sealants. I use Dr Beasley's Matte wheel sealant that was recommended to me after I got my wheels. than use CG's Meticulous matte wheel sealant/detailer after every car wash. any brake dust that accumulates on my wheels which is very little, as soon as I hit the power washer on them they come right off without even hitting it with the mitt

The red diablo cleaner in store sucks for heavy stuff personally tried it. It took gas just to clean the dust.
