Hey, I used a rim cleaner, and it seems to have removed some sort of film that was over my Pegs. I followed the directions, and washed them off, but they seems blotched permanently. Is there a film on the Pegs, and is there some sort of refinisher that I can use so that they don't look blotched? <p>Has anyone else had this problem.<p>I'll post pictures tomorrow. <p>

Sounds like you used something too strong and the clear coat came off of your wheels. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0">

These are painted wheels, you treat is as such.<br>What exactly was the product you used?

Most likely your wheels were dealer sprayed with a thin top coat to even out the finish and that stuff flakes right off.

If it's the clear coat you may he able to sand off the clear and reapply. Might as well take the time to refinish them all if you have any other scuffs, scrapes, or blemishes.
