I use Mother's Car Wash and a hand mitt to wash the wheels. I will put tire shine on when done, but that is added to a sponge and then wiped on the tires. I would never use anything harsher than that on the car.

The wheels are fine. I need to get a couple edges redone from the prior owner, but there is nothing wrong with them (other than I need to clean them at the moment).


I went to the dealership during my lunch. I spoke to the service writer that I prefer to work with, and she said that the service manager would have to make the call on this. She was not sure how that could have happened. The service manager took the car to the back to pull the wheels and get a good look at all 4 calipers. During this time, I walked the entire lot and inspected every SS Camaro I could find. Only 1 had the same damage, and the whole car looked like $***. (I also noticed that the ZL1 and Synergy calipers have a type of clear coat on the calipers that the standard SS does not).

After I got back to the front of the building, the service manager pulled me in to the shop. We went over all 4 corners of the car, and he agreed that some type of chemical was used on the car. He also agreed to replace all 4 calipers. The parts were ordered today and should be in next week.
