Hey guys looking for a set of 17" Jetta rims to buy.

My car have been parked up sometime and the diamond cut parts on the rims have oxidized.

Or if you know someone or machine shop who could give me back the diamond cut finish I would be great full

Thanks in advance

That can’t buff off with some kind of solution?
Most of them get like that after some time.

I’m willing to but I want to see my options first. I really like the diamond cut look.

I'm thinking autosol...not acidic. But I believe it contains amonia. Might work better.

Hey have you all experience an intermittent high pitch buzzing sound while driving when you press the gas pedal?Trying to figure out what is that. I does hear it when I accelerate from a speed hump. Oh it could be the car didn't heat up for 30 mins of drive...
