I know a guy that can bring back old rims to factory fresh. He does not discuss his products or methods. Ain't cheap either, starts at $100 a rim, taken off, no tire and delivered to his shop.
One guy with a Maserati paid $3 grand for 4 wheels. I asked him why, because I can was the response. Not a lot of people doing this and they get paid good money for the "look"
I had my Silverado rims redone after 9 years on the road, snap on weights instead of the better stick on type. For 450 bucks Canadian I got all four refinished. For these they blast them, cut what they need to on a lathe. They can only cut so much. Paint where they need to and then a clear coat. Recently I got a quote for my polished aluminum rims on my Sierra. 1000 bucks to fix and polish or 600 to blast, paint and clear.
