Looks like somebody sprayed some chemicals on it when it was hot. Not really sure.

Try clay see if that works. You'll probably need to polish that out though.

Yep....someone sprayed non-clearcoat cleaner on those wheels and it ruined the clearcoat.

Acid based wheel cleaner can not be used.The wheel coating is just like your paint job on the body of the car.

Lesson learned....that sucks though.

Your polished wheels are clear coated. Aluminum cleaner wont do any good. It's like spraying it on your hood.

WTF happened to your wheels is you used the wrong wheel cleaner. Best to read the bottle before using..Aluminum cleaner will eat the clear coat.

You can't use SOS pads on those wheels!

I doubt that it needs to be re cleared. It certainly needs to be polished though.
