    Ok, did what Mr. Brandt suggested, and put some soapy water on there. Not too much in the way of
    rough terrain right now that isn't mud bogged, so I just hopped around my driveway and did some big
    ring sprinting on it. Only for like 20 minutes or so, and couldn't give it a good thrashing with
    just pavement. Looks like at least one spot might have some aluminum oxide on it, but I'll leave it
    up to the pros!
