They are the 19" Premium wheels.
OEM wheels are painted and would only need to polish if you have severe discoloration of the top coat..a good clean with the right product may do the trick..Some of the detail gurus can maybe recommend what to use..

I use plain soap and water but I also clean my wheels frequently (once a week)..that imo is the key... cleaning them often will prevent dirt, brake dust ect. from being embedded into the wheels causing pitting and discoloration.

Try to post some pics if you can
