    I got these American Racing Outlaw II wheels today. All for for $60. They are a little older they guy didn't want to polish and take care of them like needed on his own so bought new ones. They are faded and have some pitting and black residue from the brake dust. What are recommendations on cleaning these up. I may eventually get a friend to paint or powder-coat them black, but will need to save up for that.

    Depends on if you want them back to the way they were but since you got them so cheap, you can have them sandblasted and powder coated but if you are trying to save some $$, I've used mother's mag and aluminum polish and ball with some success.

    I actually got one of my friends to look at them last night and he said that if I help him he will help me out. He is a painter at a auto body shop and a good one at that (he has done work on my wife's Edge after someone vandalized it). We will clean them, prep them, and paint them for $150.
