these are the wheels on my wifes 2007 that has just 55,000 miles but the salt here in the winter is killer.
the clearcoat is peeling off and the alum is corrroded behind it.
i need some ideas on what to do to make them look descent again.
im guessing blast them with some glass bead and then sand them off and polish the alum again but i would need to know what would work for sanding them down and repolishing !

I can see the problem right there in the center...

the only thing you can do is to have the wheels stripped and polished. Then you will have to either polish them all the time. Of just have them painted/ powdercoated.
