Wheels

Guys,

A Bit of advice. Here are some wheels that im going to get polished. They are 17's and are going to go onto my ea. See thread with pic.

I got these for dirt cheap. actually they were FREE!!! What do you guys think fo them, on the little black cap they say "Performance", what are they. Are they any good, and if you wanted to buy these new, how much would they set you back?

Please HELP ME

I dont think youd pay much more than a grand for em new, not sure tho.
You can get little round Ford symbols from Super cheep auto for $3 for 4 that u could stick on the middel :)

A mate couldnt afford rubber for them so he didnt want them anymore. I guess i got lucky this time ey.

The only thing is... i dont know if you can see fromt he middle but they have like a clear plastic coat on them. In the middle this is chiping away, what can i do there?

Think you can remove that with paint stripper, then polish up the rims. Check with a wheel place but.
