    Icon6 Painting wheels

    As I am about to order new tyres I thought no would probably be a good time to get my wheels re-coated. Does anyone know of a good place to get this done in Melbourne and any idea on cost

    There was a place in Heildelberg/ivanhoe area. I got quoted $100 per wheels though. I think they are good, so if you're prepared to pay that much then go for it. Maybe you should save and buy some new wheels? The 206GTI Wheels look great on an Mi16

    Sorry mate, I just think they look the shit!! I'm sure your bro will get some more somewhere. Have a look around auto paris as they are always ricing up 206's so no doubt there will be some GTI wheels around there somewhere.

    I agree, the car looks great with the Ouragon wheels!! If only it came in 17's, I would have kept the wheels.

    Do they need painting all over or have they just been kerbed?

    I had a quote from a local wheel placefor $40 per wheel just to skim the kerbing off down to a polished flat surface. Has anyone ever done this? Is there enough meat on the rim for this to be done safely? Any other suggestions?

    Thanks

    A little kebing has been involvolved but on the edges of the spokes paint has started wearing (looks like they've been sandblasted) So they need complete painting.
    By the way does anyone know what would be the best thing to paint the centre caps with?

    Mr shearer, car looks great with the gti wheels, however im gonna come around with an angle grinder & chop them springs, it will look a heap better if you lower it a bit, but still looks great.

    They look pretty good, any idea on how much those wheels are worth and any prices on custom springs?

    $120 was for respraying/repairing the complete face of the wheel.
    Was quoted $30 to do the edge of the rim.

    These prices were for 15" 205 GTi speedlines.

    Or you could buy my set of 15's which have already been fully restored for not much more!

    ...and, they are off the Brock Mi16 he campaigned at Bathurst.

    Why thankyou,

    I agree about lowering. I have a set of lower springs but as I had to spend over 2K recently on the gearbox I blew I have been a little short of moula. Will be on the cards soon enough though.

    You would be looking at around $1000 with good tyres (Eagle F1 205/45/16). Not sure where to get lowering springs for the pug, I got mine off Ebay but I'm sure Auto Paris would know of somewhere.

    Or you can buy my coilovers?

    Will fit a 306 or 405, ride will be stiffer thoiugh if you lower it alot, but you have the option of lowering anywhere upto 100mm.

    If you're wanting a plain colour such as silver, black or white, I'd suggest powder coating them. the finish is far more durable and wouldn't cost much more than $100 per wheel.
