Metropolitan Wheels..

Good evening problem solvers ....!!

I have a set of Metropolitan wheels on my Touareg. They are highly polished and in my opinion look great. Now to my problem ! There is no scratches or curbing on them , but where they have had a stone chip at some point, enough to break the lacquered surface. This has resulted in water penetrating under the lacquer causing what I'd describe as 'milky' lines appearing on the wheel. Which detracts from the good looks ...I would like to have them refurbished and brought back to new condition, but, I can't find anywhere that does them. I have tried Mobile wheel repair vans, I have also tried pristine wheels at Milton Keynes. All to no avail, pristine wheels say that because they are 'rumble polished ' they can't do them.

Does anyone know of anyone that refurbish these wheels or does it look like going down the powder coat route, which I'm trying to avoid..
Thanks in advance.......
