Alloy wheel repair
My alloy wheels are peeling and have clear coat damage. It already had this when I bought the car, but it was minimal and it has been spreading slowly. I also have some curb rash. I'm being quoted $100-150 to repair the wheels.
They will sand the curb rash, bubbles, scratches, apply bondo, etc. My main concern is what paint they are going to use and especially the clear coat. This is where these people skimp to make profit. It is unlikely that these wheel repair places are going to disclose what products they are using lol
For $100 repair, chances are they are using auto spray cans, which will not last. The Mazda clear coat obviously did not last 2 years on these wheels. This is why I'm hesitant about doing this. They will make them look nice, but it will probably only last 1 year and start peeling again.
