Nuke, those factory wheels are clearcoated. Serves to protect them at first, but once they get messed up makes it harder to bring em back.
Think that the clearcoat needs to be 100% removed before you can get the scratches out. Maybe the polishing would get rid of the clearcoat. Once there polished to a nice finish, they should be clearcoated again to preserve them.
Me, I´m thinking that´s probably not something that many of us are able to do ourselves. Would need a pro who works on wheels. That´d probably be costly, so maybe replacement makes more sense.

If new wheels are too costly, I bet you could buy a nice set of GT rims from someone who went to aftermarket wheels.
If anyone has polished their own wheels with success, let´s hear about it!
