I think the stuff you used dried the wheel or that spot out pretty good........ I have always used grease lighting to clean the tires and on my factory ES wheels.. But depending on which cleaner you have, you have to remember not to let the cleaner sit on the wheels.

Re:ES Rims

I recommend Purple Power and a nylon brush. Worked great on my wife's Grand Cherokee and the brake dust hasn't been building up again (been about 2 weeks now). Follow the directions. Easy to use and inexpensive.

Sound like O.P. almost or did bleach the clearcoat on the rim.I wish I could give more input on what to do next.I DO know Armour All will make it go away temporarily and this probably isnt the best solution,but it works.

I'm guessing your rims are the chrome ES rims. I use purple power to clean the tires and rims and I use the Duragloss clear coat polish on my paint and rims. It removes the dried water spots and residue.

There's your problem right there. CT sells crap when it comes to most of their cleaners, especially the tire and rim stuff. It's all mostly sulphuric acid based which should never be used on aluminum rims. You've probably eaten the protective coating off the rims now, and there's not really any way of getting it back.
