sorry that happened to you. detailers usually recommend not using anything more than auto soap and a sponge or terry cloth towel. the finish on rims, especially ones with high metallic content like these, tend to corrode easily with acidic cleaners. maybe insurance can cover it if your deductible isn't too high.

You can probably take that off with a fine claybar.

Looks like it's just a build up

Did you wash the stuff off or just let it sit the whole time? Like said above, I would never touch Turtle Wax products
