chrome wheels w/pits

does anybody know a good way to eliminate/hide some of the pits in chrome wheels? one of my friends said theres an acid you can spray on and rinse off that helps...didnt know if adams had a good polish for them or something as well...

acid will take the rust spots out of the wheels but the pitting will still be there, nothing you can do about that

no polishes will take the pit out. not to sure if poweredcoat would cover it or not. i would just go and check to see if you can get them swaped out then if you get new ones use acid on them at every detail you do (every three months) Do you that a pic of the pitting?

most wheel manufacturers only have a 1 year warranty on them...

My KMC's are pitting and when i noticed it i had them for about a year and a half and they wouldn't warranty them.
