Default Q: Can these chrome wheels be saved?

So I just bought my first Saleen and she's got the chrome offset wheels. I'm not really a fan of chrome, but I like these. So when I bought the car a couple weeks ago I began the detailing process. I'm still not happy with it, but that's another topic... So these wheels... I washed them with soap and water, then wheel cleaner and it did absolutely nothing. I then used some P21s polishing soap. Amazing stuff really. Unfortunately, it still didn't do enough. While they did shine up, they aren't perfect and they have a lot of pitting. The rear wheels didn't even polish up. They look pretty dull and hazy. Can these be salvaged or will I have to have them re-chromed? Thanks.
