Send them to the powdercoater.

Or have them refinished.

Some guys have used airplane stripper to strip the finish off and refinished them themselves with good results.

more than its worth, shipping alone would be 2-300 id imagine unless you lucked up and found somewhere close by.

Do yourself a favor and refinish them yourself. I am really not good with a rattle can but mine came out friggin sweet. You can use stripper, but I sanded mine down and then painted a couple coats, then cleared twice. I wish I would have put more clear on, as I am getting a couple small chips now and then. But overall, for less than 30 bucks, my sport wheels came out great.
