    Need some advice on how to get these scratches out. Just purchased these wheels for a song, great deal, I love that they're 17" diameter, tires are cheaper and personally I love that huge sidewall/smaller wheel look. Makes it look more like a monster truck.

    Anyways, need some advice on how to fix these scratches on the polished outer band part. All 4 wheels have scratches like this. Is this a clear coated alumnium finish? Or is it bare alumnium, where I can polish on it?(I know what to do there). Am I going to have to sand off the clear coat to get the scratches out?

    I figured worse case scenario I have a couple extra cans of black plasti dip and can always go that route. I know the band comes off as well, easier to polish it with it on or off the wheel??

    I'm sure a professional wheel refinishing company would be able to get that outer hoop looking like new again for a price. I'd like to give this a whack myself before I go that route, the whole reason I bought used wheels was to save $$$$.

    These videos do a pretty good job on explaining how to do wheel repair. I actually used one of them to repair the curb rash and gouges on the painted wheels for the car I just sold. They turned out great. One is for aluminum rims. I'd take off that ring first tho.
