Badly stained wheels

This is my first post ( I know it should be in a welcome section or something, but this is more pressing) on this forum. My dad recently traded his old foxbody project for a '97 cherokee sport 4-door. It is in pretty rough shape in some places and I'm looking for some help on the wheels here.

It has some 15" aluminum wheels the previous owner had installed that he would like to clean up and sell. So far I have tried everything I know and have only achieved minimal results with these wheels.

I have tried soap and water, aluminum wheel cleaner, mothers mag and aluminum polish, f1 aluminum polish, all sorts of things. I have 2 of the wheels partially ok-ish but I wouldnt buy them myself in their condition. What can I do!?

Here are some pics to reference:
Before any cleaning:
After light spray/rinse:
After polishing/clay bar:

I think the best option is to sandbalst then polish or powder coat them.
