The wheels on my 86 300SDL are original and showing signs of wear
(silver finish is faded and discolored). I had a quote for refinishing
them (redoing the silver finish, and then taking out any defects of
the wheel) of around $250/wheel. My question is, is there a simple
way to refinish the silver coating on the wheels oneself, to make
them look ok?
Otherwise, I may just buy some new non-mercedes rims from tirerack.com.
For the 86 SDL they have sizes 15x7 and 16x7.5 for approx $120/wheel,
which have the same look as the original rims, but I guess not of the
quality. Any suggestions as to size and whether such low-cost wheels
ok to use? Thanks,
