One question I have is, why are the wheels so corroded on these things. I had to be very gentle on the wheels and it took quite a while to get them clean.

IS250 OEM Brakes generate a ridiculous amount of brake dust. Ive been lazy with mine and they've become quite discolored.

I understand the brake dust but I mean these things had rust bubbles, may because a lack of protection...we he has Opti Guard(permanent wax) now so he won't need to seal his rims anymore.

Having a detailed car makes you enjoy it more, it's just like when the car is new to you and after you walking away from parking it, and you take that second glance. That's what a detailers mission is. If you want to learn more about detailing your own ride go to detailingbliss.com, that's where I learned a lot of what I know today.
