Ok im posting this here so these lowered showrooms guys who have spotless rides can help me out :bowtie: . I have WELD sidwinder polished aluminum rims that have what im pretty sure are water stains from it raining one night and being 90 degrees the next day. The spray on wash off stuff doesnt get it off so i was wondering what you guys recommend to get it off.

You said they are polished, do you know if they are clearcoated? If they are, you can't polish the stains out. If they aren't clearcoated, just get a good aluminum polish and shine them suckers up, seen some goof things said about Mothers Billet Polish lately.

Use Mothers Mag and aluminum Polish. Just put some on a rag and rub it back and forth on the spots. It'll take a lil elbow grease but they'll come right off.

When you put the polish on, if the rag don't turn black, they are clearcoated .... if they are raw aluminum the rag will turn black and you will know it's working :read:
