The one thing you do not want to do is use a high pressure spray on the wheels. The clear coat can be loosened and then you are in for lots of polishing. And if you have ever used any aluminum polish you know what I mean. Black, lots of black!!
Cool - thanks guys!
Since when I originally made this post, the rims actually have started peeling a bit. I'm thinking that is the clear coat that you are talking about. Do you think aluminum polish would work to restore these to make them look brand new again? I currently have them off the vehicle and the black rims on the vehicle for the winter - so if this is what it would need, I would have easy access to them and wouldn't have to work around the tires or whatnot.
I called an Automotive Powder Coating Company to see if they could restore it - they can, but they can't do the dual silver/black color and the cost would be about the same as a brand new rim.
