    your rims are oxidized because somethin has eaten away the clear coat. you need to remove any oxidation then re paint them. You can have them sandblasted. Though this will screw up the bare metal. After a sandblast you can polish them to almost chrome then clear them.Anything you do should be followed by clearcoat or wtever you did will come back. Duplicolor makes a high temp clearcoat that does not require paint or primer to be there first

    i love those rims i have them on my EK.
    i would clean them up good and paint them with a high temp silver and a high temp clear.
    but if you can clean them up and throw clear on them
