You mention that you want to polish them. I'm not sure if you just mean clean them up nicely or to actually polish them to a chrome like shine. If you just want to clean them up and make them look as new and original as possible you need to be very careful the 2 liter four lug Fuchs. These wheels are anodized and it is very easy to screw them up if you use anything too harsh. It even important to use a PH balanced soap and or cleaner when washing them.

SMG911, I just want to clean them good and remove road grime and keep them as close to stock looking as possible without harming the finish.

If your wheels are pretty dirty on the outside and the inside of the rim, believe it or not, SOS pads with lemon and a lot of water to keep them wet and soapy work very well without damaging the anodizing. Goo Be Gone (from Lowes) works great to remove the old stick on weight residue.
