The first thing I did was have the dealership body shop try and remove the over-spray. The kid that tried cleaning my rims didn't do much other than scratch all four rims. He should have cleaned any residual dirt and grime that was on the rims prior to using his solvent. It wasn't the solvent that did the damage - it was his scrubbing the existing dirt that caused the scratching.
I didn't even have to complain much to the Service Manager... he replaced the rims and tires for me (no argument!!!!)
I originally tried using my clay-bar along with some wax. It was coming off, but I felt it wasn't my fault the rims had over-spray. And I wanted the dealership to be the ones to remove the over-spray. Have you tried talking to the dealership where you bought your truck from?
As for the dealership that I bought from, I can't say enough good things about them! They have treated me with the up-most respect.
