Help!! Get cj white wagon wheels to come clean??

I own a 1977 renegade Levi with 5 original white wagon wheels! I have tried bleach and rubbing compound to get some of the brown surface rust to rub off! I don't want to have to paint the rims being they still have the original red pin stripe around the outer ring?!! I prefer to NOT paint the rims!! Any suggestions are appreciated!! Thanks

Have you tried Armor All Tire and Wheels cleaner? - works real good on breaking down brake dust when i used it on wife's car - but she had aluminum alloys.... look around and try some different things - ask a detailer in your area if nothing you get off the shelf works... good luck...

What about a mothers powerball with the compound the friction will have some more heat than just using a lil elbow grease
