    Default Restoring factory rims

    I googled & tried the search function here with now luck...

    I have an 83 burban witht he factory rims and I want to refinish them, does anyone have a link that might help? I will be doing it myself, but could use help with the funny little things like filling in the center caps with paint.


    Thanks in advance,

    Do you have any pics of rims? Are they aluminum, steel, chrome?

    They are the plain old steels that came with chroms rings and center caps... I got the tires off and will be sanding them down tonight getting ready for paint. I am thinking going back with the silver/gray that they came with from the factory or a glossy black.

    I suggest taking them to a powdercoating shop for the rims and just polish the rings yourself and make 'em gorgeous
