Advice on vintage set of Lorinser RS 16x8

I have a set of 5 Lorinser RS 90 wheels I bought new in 1991 for my then 300E, they took on quite a bit of beatings as all do exhibit moderate curb rash, clear coat chippings and minor bent lip on 2 wheels. I got an estimate from a wheel repair specialist who quoted me $185 per wheel to repair and refinish in BMW silver, for a whopping $925 total, cash !!!! I wanted the original machined look but it would cost $225 per wheel. Are these wheels worth the money to R&R? How much can I get for them without repair? Thanks in advance for inputs.

1991 190e 2.6, Anthracite Gray (70k miles)
2005 SL500, Pewter (66k miles)
2000 Carrera 996 Cab, Arena Red (69k miles)

I can't see a perfect set of RSs selling for more than $1500, but there are people on here that know that market better than I.

The prices you got for refinishing are a little high, but not that out of line. What was the name of the shop?
