Kind of lost me here .... did they ever look like you wanted ?
I painted the stock wheels of my MK4 jetta with the duplicolor transparent colored spray paint and Ive tryed almost everything to get them to look like I just painted them. Everything ive tryed eather leaves darker spots on them or a haze on them. Im scared to try any cleaning solvent that harsher, like Purple Power, Because it might eat away the paint. If anyone has a solution please help.
