Where did ya get it done ? I'd be sending a slister letter only costs 60euro , see what response you get from that . a respray now is big work , sanding down to primer or metal and then whole process again , usually if the primer isn't decontaminated its like trying to stick paint to a shiny surface thus causing bubbling because of a tiny layer of either dust or a cold surface causing a tiny gap in the paint

Hell of a job loosening off all of those little bolts. I did something similar with a set of Blitz wheels a few years back.

If you're suffering from lag, you're either in the wrong gear or the wrong car!

I dont think sanding chrome is a good idea, they will probably have to be chrome plated again.

I refurbed two sets of split rims, the lips arent chromed.
To get the marks out of the lips you need to sand them out, best to use varying grades of sand paper, then polish the hell out of them and apply a wheel sealant afterwards to keep the dirt off them.

I used this for polishing www.planetpolish.com/ebay/prod_belgom_alu.png though there are loads of other wheel polishes out there.
