Best way to clean these wheels

My Rohana RC10 wheels have got pitting on the chrome plate/dish.

Have used wheel cleaner but with no luck

What is the best way to clean them, get rid of the marks?

An iron remover may help

I would start with something like Bilt Hamber Auto Wheel.
PH-neutral, removes iron contaminants and also a degreaser for "normal" dirt.
Use a soft brush to help agitate stubborn areas and rinse with high pressure.

Judging by the corrosion on areas of the face i suspect you'll only see minimal improvements with even a mild fall out remover, and/or clay bar. You really need to start looking at a refurb (i also see you still have the rusty tuner bolts you asked about almost a year ago)

The definition of pitting is "make a hollow or indentation in the surface of."

If they have been pitted you wont remove it as its a physical hole in the surface of the wheel.

what these last two guys said. Can see the 'beetle track' lines on the faces of the spoke which you'll not get rid of with a product mate so as percymon said you're really going to need to look at getting them refurbished professionally pal. sorry buddy.

Ive tried billberry wheel cleaner.

Thing is they cannot be split and most companies i have been to cannot refurb them as the dish is a chrome plate
