I've refinished my own wheels and it is relatively easy, though quite time consuming... The best way to get paint off without damaging the wheel is to buy a product called aircraft stripper... This stuff eats right through paint... Sandblasting works well, but can potentially remove tiny amounts of aluminum with the paint... When done stripping, use a heavy duty polisher on a drill to clean up any imperfections, wipe with acetone, and powdercoat... I did mine in my garage with an old oven that was given to me...
