Default Cleaning Rims?

I recently bought a set of 17in rims for my 1989 honda accord. They are in pretty terrible condition (which is why i got them for cheap). I was wondering if anyone knew some good ways to clean them up the best i can. I realize that they definitely are not going to look amazing when i'm done but i want to make em look as good as i can myself. They have black spokes and a chrome lip. The chrome is flaking, has some oxidation all over and every rim has pretty bad curb rash. I appreciate any suggestions or links on how to clean them up. Thanks. PS--i was trying to add pictures for you to look at but it kept failing. Maybe the file is too big? i took them with my camera. Would pictures from a phone actually work?

We would have to see the worst rim to even make a suggestion..The chrome if it's flaking is a lost cause for sure tho..
