Rim corrosion? Old anodize? Clear coat?

913 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  ROSKO

I have a set of flanged rims I want to use but I'm having a tough time cleaning them up. They are relatively shiny but there is a clear mottled/non-shiny pattern with some dark spots all over the rims. I figure the darker spots are corrosion but I'm not sure what's causing the other spots. Could it be old anodizing gone bad? Or clear coat? I tried a coat of aircraft stripper on one rim side and it did seem to remove some of it.

Any ideas? What's the best way of cleaning these up?

Hey Rosko,

I was thinking about this. I actually have one Akront that's so grungy and corroded I think it would take a lifetime of elbow grease to get it clean. If you're willing to take a shot at it, email me a mailing address and I'll send it to you for cleaning.
