I have a set of GS Wheels on my coupe. They are really tarnished and faded, and some minor scratches on them. Can they be refinshed or resurfaced so they look nice and shiny again?

Look at G2Girls post in the Gallery section. Those are what I want mine to look like.. Can a shop do something like that? If so, is it worth it to do that?

Thanx.:)

HMMMM.... I am leary of going to chrome for the simple fact that I dont have winter wheels. Would they get ruined in the winter by road sludge etc.?

Also, will the wheels come out looking like new or will they just look polished if I get themn resurfaced?

Thanx guys.:)

There are any number of wheel restoration companies out there. Many do it on an exchange basis. The only repairs that cannot be made (economically) are deep gouges on "as cast" surfaces. Since GS wheels are machined faces there should be no problem.

Get them chromed and get a set of junkers for the Alberta winters.

Thanx Dave... thats defenitaly a thought. I guess either way, aluminum or chrome, the wheels finish will get hurt in the winter:( . I just called a shop, and they said about $120CDN per wheel to get the original surface refinished. Not bad I guess....

If you have the time you could refinish them yourself. I have used the Wheel Collision Center in PA to refinish two sets of wheels. The Legend LS Cpe wheels had some minor curb damage and were returned in like new condition even down to the correct insert paint. Cost was $125 per wheel, plus shipping. You will then need new center covers. I was so impressed, I sent them a set of Fittapaldi wheels which were straightened and refinished, again for $125 per wheel.
