    Shined the oxidation off the wheels today. Toothbrush and some simichrome and other metal polish. Followed up with a coat of car wax to help protect them. I read the oxidation on stainless steel is a normal occurrence and helps protect from rust. They will get dusty and road grit on them again but they look nice today. This set of wheels are not scratched or dented at all.

    Thanks, it didn't take that long but I have a lift so it was more convenient at arm level. I washed it first with car wash soap and let it dry overnight. Then smeared on a light coat of simichrome followed by some dri-wash metal polish applied with a toothbrush. The tooth brush will let you polish around the base of the spokes and up against the rise to the center. Brush it in circles for a bit, do a section of three pairs of spokes and do both sides, wipe it off then wipe it off with another rag, repeat as needed till it is all off then polish it with a towel. Once I figured out the process it took an hour or two per wheel. My arthritic hands hurt as that is a lot of finger work.
    Hope they stay clean and shiny after a wash for a while.
