how bad of a rash just went with a mate the other day to get his rims fixed and was looking at $278 per rim you may get it cheaper depending on how bad your rims are.

Hmmmm Interesting.


If I have Alloy wheels that are clear coated, with BAD gutter rash, do you have any tips on how to fix those up?

Do I need to re clear coat, or can I just polish the allow, like old school mags?

Cheers
BenJ
