How do I solve alloy these issues on my alloys? See attached. In case you can't see the images, the issues are:

1. broken Mercedes logo on the centre of the alloy
2. flakes of dry paint removed from corrections made to the alloy.

I would say that it would be a good idea to take them (the car) to a reputable wheel refurbishment company, not a mobile. Ask for their opinion and remedies. It will cost around £80-£100 per wheel for a good refurbishment.
Centre cap easy replacement. If you do the above I am sure they will look like new... :grin:

I'm looking for DIY solutions to start off with, before going professional. At the moment I can't justify £80-£100 a wheel
@Windinmyhair - thanks for the referral, I'll keep them in mind.

In that case Wurth are good for OEM colour and clear coat quality rattle cans.

Basically lots of rubbing down and patience in building up layers of paint and lacquer.

Maybe price up replacements. (ebay etc).
Either swap for yours and fix them, or the other way around.

Then sell the worst set on ebay to balance the books.


Then you do not have to rush the work and stay on the road.

Good idea. I can offset the cost then. Thanks.
