OK so unfortunately you can't split them

Do you know if the dishes are lacquered?

I use Meguiars All metal polish and Silvo polish wadding but the dishes on my rs's are aluminium.

I'm not really too sure, however I would imagine it would need the Lacquer being stripped off it to get anywhere.

I remember when I had my LM reps that most wheel refurbers would not take them as you could not remove the bolts. That may have just been the two places I called up but that's my experience with them
