What do you mean by machining?
Just to clean them up or to remove a lot of metal?
http://www.wheelfix.com is a great shop, they might charge more then you'd like to spend though. They'll pick up your wheels too, they're located in Uxbridge.

^^ thanks thinair for responding.

Basically what i want to do is give the front of my rims (centers and exterior lip) a metal shine. Right now the rims i have is painted silver, and i want the front to have a metallic finish (probably shave 1-2mm off). I hope that makes sense.

Yeah, 1-2mm is a lot of metal taken off.
Just have the paint stripped and the lip polished
