Just finished washing my ride this morning and to my dismay, I noticed a huge amount of fine little scratches on the spokes of my wheels. I have the 18" brite polished ones. I have been only washing by hand using Meguiar's car wash soap and a clean sponge. Looks like maybe the clear coat on these wheels are pretty soft and the sponge is causing this or else the salt particles in the snow on the road in the deeper piles might be scratching it, tho I doubt it. Anyone know if there is anything out there product wise that can be used to fill in these scrathes or to buff them out. From a distance you can't really tell but closer in they are looking a little dull, and then closer yet you can see the scratches. Argh !
