    little brother has a 98 gt with the 10 spoke polished aluminum rims and had bad rotors on his rear brakes for about a month with out replacing them:slap: . it got nasty brown rust looking stuff all over his rim and rear bumper, i was able to take it off with a clay bay and lots of buffing with an orbital buffer, but the rim is still dull and hazy looking. what do i need to use to get it back to normal?

    if the rim is not clear coated you can dip it in muratic acid or you can wet sand and re buff the wheel

    Worst case scenario would be having the wheel stripped and refinished. About $100 per wheel. Try a more aggressive polish first though.
