yes, we know your wheels and yes they go a bit frosted looking. the problem is doing them yourself. You see, we take the tyres off and the paints we use you need breathing apparatus. there is no simple answer for this one. either you can send them over by courier (you will find it cheaper to have the tyred taken off at your end as you have to pay to send them).  Or, try and polish them with an ordinary car polish which is for the body work. You can then finish them off with spray furniture polish. and a microfibre cloth should do the trick. If this works the more times you do this the better they will get.

Lastly, it might be easier to buy some new wheels. Do they have an ebay in Africa?


Kind regards
