Hey guys since i dont have a license my car just sits in the driveway and it probly wont be too much of a problem now but during winter water has been sitting on my 12 slotters and they have been rusting up.

No to the contrary, they were surprised how well it worked on the rust, but no good as a degreaser.

Try a wire wheel in a grinder to get it off and a bit of gold galv, killrust or the likes to stop the rust.

Then if wanna touch em up buy some "chrome spray" just to blend it in a bit as you cannot get rims rechromed.

you can but its gonna cost $$$ call up some wheel shops, if they dont do repairs there they will put you onto a place that does.

in my experience "chrome spray" is just glorified silver paint and doesnt look anything like chrome
