scratched rims

im sure im not the only one to give myself uppercut after scratching up a rim, shit its been a year i held off ok.
my point like to get em gold chromed, is this possible?
they are AU2 17's and now require a little smoothing out
anybody know of, or gone through the same drama?
im in Sydney and any recommendations of places would be appreciated

Re: scratched rims

I got the T-Series ones done several times by some mob in Thomastown. Cost for a complete refinish was $180 / wheel so it ain't chep - except compared to a new rim!

Re: scratched rims

Get them mirror polished, it looks the same, but the rims don't weigh an extra 10kg each (good thing)
