Try wheel polish or wax.

Eek... That does not look good. I believe Fikse clear coats their wheels. If so, you will have to get the clear coat chemically stripped, polish the wheels, and clear coat them again to protect the polished finish. It is usually impossible to save clear coat through mechanical polishing (i.e. hand glazing).

It might be cheaper to have them painted and clear coated.

These particular wheels were sitting in the garage for almost a year, that's why. I bet I can clean them without having to re clear coat or paint.....

Those are the FM 10s, right? I just got the Profil 10s, and they are not clear-coated. You can just polish them. I'm stoked to put them on my car...

-week 50 (at least it will be more exciting to track it now that status will be be changing more frequently)

just don't use any alcohol based cleaners with either acetone, ethanol, methenol or other, it will further your oxdation and make it permanent! try using some silver polish that jewelers use!
