    Most Texas Editions. Unless they're actually chrome or aluminum.

    If i could find a set like this i would sell my 08 GMC 20's and snatch these up. Why didn't GM do this in the first place.

    Not sure if it will help anyone or not but fwiw, my father owns an HVAC business and he uses this special aluminum coil cleaner to maintenance AC units. I used that cleaner on my old MT Classics to remove pitting and road gunk a few times and it worked really well. It seems like it literally dissolved the buildup on the wheels.

    If there's an HVAC supply store near you they probably have it in stock for cheap. Just make sure you wear gloves.

    I dob't off the top of my head. It was awhile ago, I just remember it's pink and comes in a gallon jug. A quick Google search gave me the name Acti-Brite (Sold by Parker), which sounds familiar. It's pretty nasty stuff, but it works really well in my experience.

    I found that cleaner on google. Dis you dilute the chemical to a certain ratio of water or did you just apply the chemical to the rim surface?

    When I used it, my father had already diluted it. I believe there is a manufacturer recommended dilution ratio.

    Ah ok. Definitely will give it a try. Do you know how it compares to Aircraft Stripper?

    I believe aircraft stripper is solvent based. Acti brite is an acid solution that foams up.

    It is pink and in a gallon jug. It's been awhile since I had aluminum wheels, but the stuff does wonders. The ratio is on the jug and yes where gloves.
