Well, if your talkin about a "lip" rim, something like a gunmetal rim. The non machined lip would be all gunmetal, whereas the machines lip would be a nice silver lip with a gunmetal center.

So, the lip is just a term to show that it has a different color than the rest of the rim?!??! I thought it was something more concrete, like the edge of the rim sticks out more or looks more solid making a 17" look like it's an 18" or something like that.

No

A lip is what you a you are talking about.
Machining is just where they basically polish either the rim or the lip to a high gloss finish....so aluminum almost looks chrome

There's even more to that. The one piece wheels that try to look like multi-piece usually have a machined lip. The multi-piece M-5's in the pic have a polished lip. You can see the difference between a polished and machined lip because the machined lip has grooves where they ground the lip. Polished looks like a mirror and is smooth.
