take a picture? some auto body supply stores will have "wheel acid" or wheel brightner, its basically hydroflouric acid and cleans the rims nice, then i polish and wax when im done...... but if u had a picture i could give you more of an in-depth opinion.

I worked at a ford dealer for years when i was in college doing detailing, so i know some tricks.

you have to upload them to something like photobucket.com

the "link" you posted is just a computer directory to the files on your computer.
