Its been a bad week...need help!
First off, I scratched my rim this week. Luckily I have the tire/rim package so that's being repaired.
Secondly, I washed my car today at one of those places where you pull in and use the pressure sprayer. I only used the water, I had my own bucket and maguires wash. Everything went well until when I backed out...Sun was shining really bright and I noticed my rims had a grime on them. It almost looks like the glossiness of the rim is gone and theres this film over them. Im guessing this could be a few things:
2-damage by the pressure washer - I had the hose about 1-2 feet away
3-brake dust combined with all of the above?
Its really bugging me...
Anyone have any advice? Is it even safe to use those high pressure washers?
Thanks for any advice. I have an apt at the dealer and plan to check on it when I go in later this week to get the rim with the scratch replaced. Just looking for some insight until then...
