brought life back to old wheels

I am fixing up this turd bucket that i bought basically sight unseen, the guy had painted the wheels silver,then white, then black. the wheels are 19x8.5 not a factory bmw wheel, I stripped the wheels down to the original coat.they didnt look too bad,but the corrosion was under the clear coat,so i went ahead and sand blasted them all the way down .went to harbor freight and bought a polishing kit..it actually worked good..here are some before and after pictures.wasnt able to save the plastic rivets tho.
