Re: xe esp rims, alloy or chrome?
Oh, to prepare them for painting, you may need to look at using a good paint stripper that won't etch into the aluminium, or maybe plastic bead blasting.
Don't use normal sand blasting, and I'd even stay away from coarse sandpaper etc, as these will only remove metal and damage the finish of the wheel.
For the machined edge, you might know someone that could dress them up in a lathe, but make sure they only remove the smallest possible amount of metal.
They MUSt know what they are doing or you will be looking for another wheel!
