Yes!

They are the optional 16" sports option on eb/ed's

I am actually polishing up a set to put on my car.

What specs are the tyres you have 225/50R16 ?

Well what I am doing is this:

1. Sellys quick strip paint it on and use a firmish brush and plastic paint scraper remove as much as possible then hose off.

2. Use wetting and dry paper varying from about 240 throught to 1200 or 2400 wet sand them back to a very nice smooth finish.

3. The with a high speed drill, cotton polishing cloth wheel and polishing compound, polish them to a mirror finish. (or you can use autosol and ALOT of elbow geease)

4. Clean with prepsol or mineral turps etc and wipe down clean shoudl still retain the high quality mirror finish of step 3

5. Get some clear coat onto them for a lasting finish.

I am planning on doing one wheel per day (pending condition), slow and steady produces a good job.
