    Water spots on rims

    Hey guys, just a quick question I hope you can all help me with! I have recently bought some very expensive billet aluminum rims that unfortunately have gotten rained on and not wiped right away. I have tried everything including the new water spot remover and even tried ultimate compound with no luck whatsoever. Please help!

    Polishing Clay?

    If you have bare aluminum you CAN plolish it.
    Get some metal polish.
