Bought these rims to replace the vile grey standard 250 rims.

Anyway when they arrived they were corroded round the edge due to water getting under the laquer. (Common issue I think)
I've sanded down the silver edge and they look nice again, and now need laquering.

Do I just use normal clear paint laquer as I have a few tins already or is there a special laquer for alloy wheels.

Thanks

I think your old and new rims are the same... just different color

Cheers, I might make that a summer job then. I have a spare set of rims I could work on. I swapped them out for some 'better' stock ones only to find this within 6 months... GTS alloy corrosion

I furbed mine with sandpaper from the £1 shop and the tin of laquer so all in all taking into consideration cost of rims, sandpaper and laquer they stand me at £51

Bargain and now looks loads better IMO and I'm sure ill sell my old rims for double that when the right buyer comes along.

So it was a

Cheers. Did you get any issues with a yellow tint to the lacquer? Found the product and read the reviews - one user loved it like you, two hated it because of the discolouration? (I wonder if it was a bad batch or they didn't pre-shake it enough...)

It says on the tin to be careful with white paint and yellowing

So far so good with no problems and it's as hard as nails.

As you can see no yellowing



The white on the tire is the white stuff they use when putting tires on (I hadn't washed it at that point)

And to be fair the first guy moaning says he was spraying over white so he didn't read the warning.

Give it a week to harden though.
