Considering those pictures weren't in the OP, how was I to know that you fucked them up that bad? You showed a picture of one wheel with one scratch.

But hey, you have other options than buying a whole set of new wheels. Also, if you're really stuck on that style, you could find something extremely similar, but without the tacky looking fake 3-piece look. Just my opinion though.

Either way those are your exact specs, so.... yeah. Figure it out. Those weren't very popular and don't seem to have been made in large quantities.

do you know anyone that can repair chrome? if it doesn't buff out, which it doesn't then it's not an 'easy repair'. not a repair at all but a replace. or unless you know some magic chrome repair technique that i don't know about,. do tell..

Your not going to be able to repair them yourself at home, with buffing..

Take them to a professional. They'll tell you what can and cannot be repaired.
at least get a quote?

I have seen wheels in worse condition then yours repaired looking brand new.

I'm not going to google wheel repair in your area for you. You will have to take them somewhere and pay someone, but yes that damage looks to be an easy fix.

like a couple of others and myself have pointed out already, we dont mean YOU fix it yourself, but take it to a competent wheel repair guy/shop and they can fix it no problem. I've seen BBS LM's (real ones) way more beat up than yours come out looking brand new. if yours are actual chrome plated, then they'll repair it and probably have to get it re-chrome-plated. if its just a high polish, they can easily match the polish finish. either way, its doable and its been done.

i did take it someone that does expert paint correction. he also does work on rims. but the cost to actually repair the chrome would cost more than the chrome wheel itself.

it's cost prohibitive and not cheap. not sure if it's worth repairing since it would cost more than the rim itself.

but if i can't find a replacement then maybe i should just do it.

Should probably be between 150-250 a wheel. Depends on your area, the place, etc.


Around here you can get a whole set of wheels repaired and powder coated most standard colors for around 600.
