Performance BMW to repaint wheels (more) (archive)

Everyone with fading wheels should get the fixed for FREE, but I have a question below.

Performance BMW in Chapel Hill, NC, has agreed that my wheels are fading, and is willing to sandblast, and then repaint and finish them. The even said that they do the clear-coat, but in opinion, there does not appear to be a clear coat on the original finish. Hell, there is hardly even a silver coat .

QUESTION. I have a few tiny scratches in my wheels. One chunk from a torque wrench. Two nicks from a clamp that Firestone used. A tiny nick from BMWs tire mounting machine, and some minor rash on one wheel. Since I'm getting the wheels re-painted, should I have these things repaired, or is the sand-blasting and two-coat paint job going to cover it all up anyway? Does anyone know if the tires need to be removed?
