Default G35 Coupe Wheels Restored And Installed

Finished restoring some curbed G35 Coupe 18's I bought for $300.

I painted them with Wurth Silver and coated them with Wurth Lacquer clearcoat. I also painted the centercaps to match. This was a long process and a learning one. I would not restore rims again by hand. These definitely have their imperfections but I am happy with them.

Installed on brand new Bridgestone turanza serenity plus

I also got an alignment and 350z camber arms installed that day.

Here's some shots. I have way more somewhere but I don't want to bore you guys.

Thanks guys - I got em on craigslist. Guy wanted 400. They came with no tires and had some decent curb rash and knicks in them.

I brought em down to bare metal (my hand) and sanded and bondo'd and primed and glazed and primed and painted and painted and PAINTED!

Way too much work for just an O.K outcome I wanted them to be amazing but I am happy enough with them - if you get close up you can see some of the black underneath the paint which is the primer I put on before. The paint I got has flakes that stand up rather than lay flat so it's hard to work with

I think it gives them character and looks like brake dust. But you got to look pretty close to see it. I'll post more picture in a sec.

Man, they came out really good. Damn good job...

What do you mean by rotate? As in, maintenance tire rotation?

Yea tire rotation. They are 245/45/18 all around but the offset is different because there are REARS and FRONTS labeled on the rims themselves.

You can only rotate from side to side.
