Can chrome plating be removed without destroying the wheel?

I'm curious, as I have a set of chromed wheels for my R129, and I have yet to find anyone who will even consider trying to refinish them.

Silly question.
Yes, of course.

The question is relevant. I am familiar with methods such as media and bead blasting, but the companies I spoke with said that chrome plating that is properly done is very difficult to remove without using chemical means to do so, which can also damage and weaken the alloys used in these wheels. If they were plated properly, there will be nickel plating underneath the chrome. Strong chemicals such as muriatic acid can be used to remove the chrome plating, but it won't remove the nickel plating underneath.

The places I spoke to said that to do it properly the wheels should go to a plating shop that would have the chemicals and know how to remove both the chrome and nickel.

I have first hand experience in this case, had a set of HRE faces chemically stripped. Had zero issues. Any competent plating shop can do it.
This one can be sandblasted since it will need powdercoat afterwards.
