No, the wheels first get stripped down to the bare metal, and then the get sent to a machine shop. A machinist will thing brush the wheels until the finish looks like that. If you notice on the pictures above, the brushing in between the spokes/windows it looks less uniform. This is all done by hand. One of our dealers did something similar, except they polished the windows of the spokes. In my opinion, it looks cleaner this way.
