I've never done polishing. Since the wheels came in a pretty rough shape I'll be sending them put to get the lips and face polished.
If this was a cheaper set of wheels I'd attempt it myself.

yea i only sent them out to get lips and faces polished. im worked on the barrels myself.
they charge $50 per, to assemble and reassemble. i did it myself so basically saved $50 per wheel.

you can email Shinez with pics, and Dave will give you an estimate. Hes a pleasure to deal with.

it all depends on the face of the wheel.
check out http://www.shinez.ca/ and email with your pics of the wheel. Dave will be able to answer all your questions.

if you want them done right, id take them apart and clean them up first. its more work, but its worth it.

damn your wheels looks new, yea im thinking if i should get my wheels refinished too cuz i have a similar machine face on my wheels. and some of the clear is beginning to peel. how are you going to put your wheels back together? just put the bolts back on? is there a torque spec or sealant? is shinez prices good? cuz the website seems kinda shady, just random guy who takes your wheels and does work no shop or anything.

Putting them back together will be simple. Ill use lock-tite on the nut threads and torque to 30lbs max.
As far as Shinez, I felt the same way. Dave was a real pro and provides a work order when he picks them up.
He drives a white van with company logos all over it so he's really not hiding his business.
You'll have to email some pics to him and he will provide a quote. I'd recommend him to anyone. Let me know what you decide to do with your set.

Nice, can't wait to see the finish setup.
What stance are you on and what mods did you do to your fenders.
I was able to squeeze 19x9(225/35/19)+37 and 19x10.5(275/30/19)+46 on my is300
Got my own eastwood roller that did the job.
