Re: Peg Refinishing (new hampshiRe)

You can refinish them yourself if you want the ultra cheap route (under $100). But...it will take quite a bit of elbow grease.<p>No need to dismount the tires.<p><IMG SRC="http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i179/SH8KDWN/IMG00336.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i179/SH8KDWN/IMG00337.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i179/SH8KDWN/IMG00338.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i179/SH8KDWN/IMG00342.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: Peg Refinishing (Oz60R)

Up here in Maine...not sure if he cover NH, there is "Alloy Wheel Repair" , Kerry Staples. He comes to your location and no need to dismount tires. Dealerships use him. I know he does alloy wheel fixes for Portland Volvo. He quoted me around $110 per wheel painted either black or darker color then the original silver on the peg. PM'd you his number.

Re: Peg Refinishing (Oz60R)

Do all 4 for $200? Also, I want to keep them the stock bright silver color (considered going all black but I think I will stay with silver) I am looking to get rid of some decent curb rash...wont the wheels have to be filled in before being powdercoated, or else it will just cover up the abrasions? Thanks for all the input guys...

Re: (mjaffe)

Well it seems to me that if I am willing to take the time I can do them myself. I tried to search for step by step directions on how to do so and how long to expect this to take, but without much success. Can anyone help me out with what i would need to do this and also what type of quality/durablity can be acheived from doing this...?<br>Thanks again guys for all the posts

Re: (QnsMostWanted)

Some of these are good deals for 18s, but on 17s, the price of a used wheel with little or no rash is the same on avg. as some of the refinish costs listed here...food for thought.

Re: Peg Refinishing (new hampshiRe)

Perhaps a stupid newbie question but can the inner rim area also be refinished (or do most only do the outside visible area)? My 18's are looking pretty bad in this section and need alternatives. Thanks.

Re: (new hampshiRe)

I was just reading the post about the blotched pegs and it made me think about what is going on with mine. I have some curb rash that I will be trying to sort out when I paint but around the lug nuts the paint on the pegs is starting to flake. Does this mean that the dealership I bought it at sprayed a coat over the factory finish? I use these wheels in the winter too, so I am not sure if the harsh winters up here is NH could be to blame or the shady dealer where I got my car.

I had a local wheel repair shop fill, straighten, and powder coat all my pegs with a "chromatic" powdercoat. It's just a little more like polished metal than your typical silver finishes, I like it a lot. Cost me $420 for all 4. <p>This pic was taken at night with a long exposure so it's all yellow, but it's the best pic I have of showing how much they really reflect and pop.<p><IMG SRC="http://www.slaptardcentral.com/gallery/files/6/C70writeup_56.jpg" BORDER="0">
