Polishing stock 17" Sport wheels

I am considering powder coating and/or polishing my stock 17" Sport wheels. I have seen folks powder coat these. Anyone polished them?

Are these wheels an aluminum alloy? I am wanting to mirror polish parts of the wheel and then get the rest powder coated. But, I am not sure if I can sand off the silver finish and the mirror polish what is under that finish.

Yes, they are aluminum alloy and they are clear powder coated already from the factory.
