for the chrome on my raleigh burners i give them an oxalic acid bath
its a bleach for timber or cleaning decking
works great on rust on chrome or metal !
dont no if it will have the same affect on alloy !

just googled it and you can use it

a lot less harsh than other acids !
bout £6 for half ounce !! Very Happy

put the wheels in a bucket of water and add a gram or two of powder then leave for 3/4 hrs then if no reaction add a gram more then you should see a reaction of like an orange substance on the wheels
scrub off the substance and re soak for about 24 hrs and keep removing the substance every so often :0

i can't get them off by hand and bit worried about damaging them as the bloke that found them had a hell of a job , if I can polish without talking off it would be shit loads easyer and if I paint them there's no point taking um off , I spec any process that needs them off will cost more than I want to spend on um BUT if I could get them looking great for not to much cash I would take the rubber off
