    Default Refurbing Steel Wheels

    I have just started to collect a set of 16" steel wheels (for winter use).

    I started looking at getting some wheel trims for them but I don't like most of them.

    So I was wondering about cleaning them up and refurbing them.
    Say clean them, sand the scuffs on the edges and re spray.

    But how do I do it and what do I need. I have not done any spraying before.

    Also not sure whether to spray them black or silver?

    Cant help with the spraying advice mate but I think they'd look cool black. My dad has black steelie's on his F**d M****o (which also black) and it looks pretty cool imho.

    depends on the colour of the car as to the wheel colour, on my black corsa i was gonna get some 15 inch steels and spray them white going for the 106 rallye look lol ( the only thing Peugeot got right that was)

    My car is Silver Lightning so not sure if black or silver wheels. Maybe a spot of photoshopping is required...

    Your right about the 106 Rallye, it was a great car, so was the 306 GTi-6 and Rallye...
