Default Refurbish original chrome wheels

I now have two wheels leaking air around the rim, one slow one dramatic. There is no physical damage to the rim (dents from kerbing, etc) it is to do with the sealing of the tyre to the rim.

Anyone in the UK know of somewhere that I can get the rims refurbished? Has anyone attempted to refurb the rim themselves?

Just FYI another reason they leak is corrosion around the valve stem (I hear a very common problem with these rims).
Both rears on my had a slow leak.
I took it to the local tire store (Discount tire here in the USA) and they were able to clean around the valve stem and fix the leak.

They said mine were in pretty good shape for their age. They are the 16 x 6 chromies.
