I’ve got a few places on my rims where I’ve rubbed against the curb and roughed up the surface of the rims. I’ve also got a couple of places where the protective “paint” on the rims has flaked off.

Now, I’m getting oxidation and discoloration of the aluminum where there is bare metal.

Any suggestions on how to clean and seal?

Many thanks!!

Im having similar issues... but as aluminum cant really oxidize, your not going to see your rims "rust through" or anything. Unless you hate the way it looks... It's not a huge concern of mine anyway.

I'm not concerned about it rusting through. I'm concerned about the way it looks and wanting to stop it before it gets worse. The discoloration seems to be spreading.

There's really not a whole lot you could do yourself. If you wanted find a wheel repair place in town. they'll have to strip it down and resurface the face of the wheel then re-clear it.
