Hello Z16jim
I had my " sawblade"rims refinished by Carcones (Aurora, 1-800-263-2022). They were pretty beat up, now look like new.
Cost was about $140 per rim, includes, pick up, refinish including check for true and repair as needed, return delivery.

Good luck.

Well not good news, called about rims today the guy got back to me and said, they can`t strip off the clear coat. the company that supplies the stripper said they changed the formula and it is not strong enough ( for environmental issues ).
