Refinishing Alloy Wheels

Just  found out I can get my old wheels refinished through work, but am 
concerned  about one aspect.  They will burn  off the old paint using an oven that 
gets to 800 degrees.  The wheels then get cleaned and powder  coated.  My 
question is will the  burn off affect the strength of the wheel at all.  Some 
supposed experts on another list  tell of horror stories like wheel strength and 
roundness being compromised from  heating aluminum alloys.  My tech  staff at 
work disagrees, just wondering if anyone else has any experiences they  would 
like to share.
