custom wheel help

im ready to throw in the towel on these stupid things. i have these eagle alloys that are polished, cant keep them clean or get them clean for that matter , theya re 2 years old, i ll post some pics over the weekend, i have tried every cleaner , brush and chemical known to man, i run ceramic pads on the front. i can get some on the crap off, but they are lightly pitted. any ideas on what to do with them? i was thinking about wetsanding them and possibly repolishing them , also have thought about flat out sanding them down and just painting them, oh these arent on my mn12s they are on my f150. any thoughts? eagle is useless.

Its you're truck so its your call, but if they are pitted its either going to be repolish or paint them. Paint will be easier but Polished will problaby look better.

A sliver paint would be a good look. When I think of people painting wheels though I immediately think black or white which IMO normally looks like crap.
