This is my 307 1.4 hdi.

I have just bought a set of the OEM 16inch wheels and had new tyres fitted.

I'm planning on painting the wheels tomorrow as they are corroded and scuffed, but I can't decide what colour to do.

I don't really want to make the at in your face, but I'd like to slightly stand out from every other 307 in the country.

The car is a very light grey/dark siler.

Here are the 3 colours I can use.
Focus st (2013) grey/bronze

I'll be masking and bagging the tyres.

The wheels will be sanded down, primed, based and lacqued.

I work in a bodyshop, so they will be done properly.

Hi

I was quoted today £51 per wheel I think they blast them and I was thinking they would seal the inside where tire sits.

When you sand them what grit do you use can you get good adhesion with the primer / filler

Do you use base and clear, sorry for all the questions I used to spray but done steel rimes not alloy and used cellulose

£204 can buy a compressor and gun was guessing a litre of clear lacquer no idea how much it costs now lol

Well,

I'll be sanding with 120, 240 then 320.

2k primer, water base and a solvent lacquer.

I'll only be painting the face and the inside, obviously the inside will have a coat of lacquer, but it won't be enough to make it shiny.

Thank you with the materials you mention and for wheels only using a relatively narrow spray pattern would you imagine I could get by with 30psi.

Never used water based that must have a low viscosity

Good luck with yours, if I ever get the mechanical sorted think I may do the wheels will price it up main issue is drying times

Cheers

Chrome... Like a mirror?

First wheel has been based, I've gone for silver.

Crap part is that the wheels are about 10+ years old, so there's a few defects from corrosion.

I only filled chips and scuffs as I was in a bit of a rush.

The 2k primer did cover the pitting, but seems to have slightly shown through.
