Actually that's one of the places that i went to and they can not do them like they do the cage wheels..
He did alude to manually polishing the rims by hand at some stage but does not carry out this service anymore..

Be really careful with this mate...the tyre pressure could burst the rim off the wheel if you take too much off.........i've polished plenty of rims..its not that hard....no, not with me tongue,,!!
