Eagle one for the win!
Sounds like there is still a problem after the rims are cleaned with a cleaner.
I would try Dupont # 7 Chrome polish and el cheepo microfiber towels. # 7 has never let me down when there is a dirty wheel job to do.
After the wheel is clean and dry I would strongly recommend using a quality sealant ro seal the wheels. . Meguiars #21 Synthetic Sealant will do the job and not break the bank. I usually use Zaino after doing the entire car.
