    Alloy Wheel Refurb Kit

    I recently bought some alloy wheels that i need to refurb, they are only 15's but i got a absolute bargain so i couldnt say no. They need filling and rubbing smooth quite heavily in places. What filler is up to the job? I understand i can jsut use primer, paint, laquer on them after i have them all prepped? I have no idea what filler to use thats all. If they come out ok im gonna run them in the winter or chuck them on my sisters astra.

    Any help on this would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    How much is this and is it just a halfords jobbie? I take it thats all thats needed, apply the filler and make it nice and smooth then prep them and paint?

    Thinking of going orange or yellow for a laugh with some 185/55/15 tyres stretch on them as there 7j

    yeah pretty much standard process mate

    halfords and most local factors sell it - its an age old classic - cant go wrong with it

    what rims exactly are they?

    personally if i was goin euro stretch then id try n get a nice low profile - not sure if 55 would be low enough - but ur the person when it comes to tyres

    185 should stretch nicely across the 7j but its just the profile im not sure about. 55 would be quite high, i was thinking 45 or 50, but then they arches would look like a 4x4 as the rims are only 15's

    They are just AEZ multispoke things. Et35 so should fit fine. There not that great but im gonna have ago with them just for a project, ill get some pics of them so you can actually see them.
