We are camping at Tiger Run RV Resort in Breckenridge. There was a detailer running around and I went to ask him the best way to get hard water spots off the side of the coach. I said my rim looks horrible as well. He said he could polish them for $25 per wheel. I said sure. Here is the before and after.

High speed buffer and a little polish go a long ways.

WOW, they look awesome!

To remove hard water spots I use a mix of 75% water and 25% white distilled vinegar. Just spray it on and wipe the hard water spots off. I use it on the glass, the paint and the aluminum wheels. You will smell like vinegar until you wash up but it's a really easy and cheap way to remove the spots.

There are people who do this in Truck Stops and make good money at it.
If you pack a CB in your tow rig you can hear when they are workin.

Looks great,,,big difference. Now you keep it that way. I usually wax my wheels and it makes them easier to clean..

nice job on the wheels and a great price too. polish them up about once a month and the cleaning/polishing will go much faster now that the oxidation is gone.

I thought they looked good before when I bought the coach. I never knew they could look this good.

when you run that coach thru the truck wash do NOT have the brightener added if they offer. it does polished aluminum no good. if you can find a polisher that uses jewelers rouge, you will get those wheels shinier yet.
