I just did this a couple weeks ago with a set I found at a pawn shop. I beadblasted them, the machined aluminum surface (rim)at a pretty low pressure (about 20psi). That removed all of the stains and light imperfections. Then followed up with a grey scotch brite pad, fine steel wool, then polish. I kinda like the look of the old wheels, so I didnt go crazy on the polish. Depending on whether or not the rim is machined, you can wet sand and polish aluminum, much like paint.
Email me if you want some pics or info. Not an expert on these really, but my results were good.
