says not to use on aluminum
i was quoted 350 to have them refinished. would be nice to have them professionally refinished, but not possible as of right now.

wire brush like a battery terminal cleaner on a drill to clean the lug holes.

After that, shit tons of sanding. the marks need to be sanded out. This is where your labor is. Going to take a lot of elbow grease to sand them out. I would start at 180/200 grit paper and see how it did on getting marks out. You may need to go coarser on some of the scratches.

After that, polish them again and clearcoat.

cool. thanks bruh. any other tips/tricks i should know? this will be my first time refinishing wheels

it's gonna fucking suck, that's what you should know. Lol

It's a time consuming process. patience will be rewarded with better finish. Get plenty of sand paper and keep a spray bottle with soap/water set next to you. wetsanding takes lots of liquid.

yeah i figured it was gonna fucking suck, but i do a lot of wet sanding for work so im fairly used to it by now

If they're alloys, that's the studs rusting and not the wheel so you can just wire brush it off.

i was thinking about hitting them with a dremel and a wire bush attachment or something similar. but those spots that are rusted look like pressed in inserts, which ive never noticed on any other wheels before.

dremel with the sanding bit works wonders for getting scratches out
then smooth the section with sandpaper to remove any flat spots.

i might give that a shot. id be paranoid of sanding too deep with it and have some wavy shit going on. but it might be my best bet to get those gouges out
agreed. heres some one my 90s shitbox
