Clear coat gone cloudy?

I have a set of ameriacn racing rims that I've had on my truck since 95 and the clear coat has seen better days. I don't want to spend a grand on four new rims. I want the ones I have to look like they did when I first bought them. One of the rims even what looks like to be mold under the clear coat. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to restore them? Thanks in advance

Maverick

I've never used this, but the other things from Griots have worked well. There is also silver paint that you lay down first, then the clear laquer.

You can have them stripped of old clear coat and powder coated clear.

Ok, cool, I contacted American racing and asked them too, they said the same thing, looks like having them striped is my only option. Thanks everyone

When the clearcoat goes bad like that the only option is to strip it off and reshoot them.
