Thumbs down tire shine on rims!!

Can someone please tell me how to fix my aluminum rims? The previous owner thought using tire shine would be a marvelous idea to clean the rims also and now theyre bubbled. Any ideas?

I think its your clear coat coming off. You would have to sand them and re-clear them

I just repainted a set of old rims I bought for winters that had clear messed up and once the clear starts to bubble they go to crap. But easy to clean them up and reapply the clear or paint them... pics of mine in here

if the clear finish is pealing/bubbling? you can remove it with aircraft stripper before you paint them.... brush it on let it sit fro 10-15 min.. and rinse with water hose..
