Are there any painted areas? An old school trick "grew up around classic car and hot rod shows with my family" is, if it's not pitted too bad you can use aluminum foil "ball it up" for abrasion and an aluminum wheel cleaner for lubrication, then rinse and dry. It actually does a decent job of keeping them shiny between polishings.
