Stock Rims - 5 Star Design - Look Rough - Refurb Help

Guys

I have stock alloys on my 2006 Wk GC in fact they are identical to the ones on the Black Wk on the site page header.

My alloys are corroded and have worm like light white wiggles all over.

I cant find a site that went through how to refurb them so I cant remember if the stock rims are solid aluminium with a clear coat etc.

So can anyone tell me the correct way to refurb them so they dont make my GC look like a dog as they are real bad looking.

I didnt want to just go and attack them with wet n dry grit paper etc and totally kill em. But from what I can find it seems thats what I need to do and then polish them up with Aluminium polish before a clear coat seal.

Is that right?

Thanks
