Chrome Rim Stained Spots

I've tried pretty much everything: brake cleaner, regular house hold cleaners, rime & wheel cleaner and especially scrubbing the rims when I wash the truck but nothing seems to be working on these spots

If yall had any suggestions then I'd really like to hear em, I just want the clean chrome look I used to have like below:


Now this is what it looks like:


And a close up:



It's on all 4 wheels. As a last resort I can plasti-dip my rims, but I'm really trying to clean the original chrome rims up a bit

Thanks and I look forward to your guys' input!!

Those wheels do not look like they are chrome. The wheels are pitted. Only way to fix is to refinish them.

I have the same problem on my rims and I just decided to get them painted. Less of a hassle and it won't cost as much getting new rims
