    Refurbing my alloys...is it worth it?

    Hi guys,

    I bought some OZ SuperTurismos off here a while back and, while they looked good from a distance, they were in a bit of a sorry state. I'm considering getting them refurbished (either by a pro or having a go myself) but the damage on them extends beyond just a few basic kerb marks. In a number of places the finish has bubbled, and in one or two places it's even started to flake off. Thankfully I haven't caused any extra damage to them since buying them, but I'm wondering if this sort of damage is repairable to an extent, or is it just not worth the time/money etc?

    I've attached some pics which hopefully show some of the issues:
    (The black dots all over them is just dirt! Haven't had a chance to clean the car since PVS )

    You could get these wheels refurbed from anything from £0 - £200.... If done correctly which involves stripping them back to base... They will look awesome IMO when done... They will look brand spanking.....
