Only because your asking for advice,
I'd paint them black.... in an attempt to hide them.

pothole, plus i got sick of cleaning them. they might end up back on eventually depending what my brother decides, hes gunna see about fixing/replacing the broken one and then if he doesnt like them on his ute ill be able to have them back maybe

I wanted a change of some sort anyway and these were the right price, made the car safer and more legal than a random stocky, and was cheaper than replacing the one damaged wheel.

All in all they actually look good if cleaned up.

But I recon they would look pritty good gunmetal grey if done properly.

Yeah they do, once I Get the paint off the other two I'll polish them all up and see what I think.
Then make my ultimate decision about them.

I wouldn't recommend polishing them unless you want to be constantly polishing them up. Its alot of work keeping them polished.

I could and probably will be wrong :oops: , but couldnt you polish the rims up and then get them clear coated to seal the metal and protect the polish? :idea:

Just looking at the Fairlane, has anyone ever seen or put and XR front on one of those. Could be good? :idea:

Yeah but he would have to get the proper clear stuff. I tried heaps of times to clear them but they just kept going real foggy and crappy looking.

I just saw an ad in the back of Unique Cars, for a metal clear coat called DIAMOND FINISH :shock: . Could be what you need. Web site is KBSCOATINGS.com.au. Says Aussie made as well. :shock:
