Scratches and brake dust on hyper silver wheels...

Hey guys my VMR VB3s have scratches on them here and there from me washing/drying especially today when I used a t-shirt to dry because I couldn't find my microfiber. Any products out there you guys have used to get them out? I tried rubbing compound, but it didn't do much. As mentioned I also have tons of brake dust caked on there.

I appreciate the suggestion, but there is nothing wrong with using microfiber to dry cars. I've seen the most elite Detailers use it. I don't have your regular store brand microfiber, I have good expensive plush microfiber towels.

I never use things like t shirts to dry my wheels, but I was just patting it down lightly to dry and never imagined it would put scratches the way it did.

i use plush mf towles too but if towel is has little dirt can scratch your paint and everything. Leaf blower is more safe because it is not touching anything. more touching would create more swirls and scratches
