[urq] Wheel restoration

I just had my R8's refinished recently (2 weeks ago) so I'll pass on what I
was told by Spec Wheels of America. Now, keep in mind, of course, the Fuchs
are forged whereas the Ronals are not...In my case they welded up a bead to
restore the curb rash areas. But I do wonder if they can do this on Fuchs
wheel... I asked them about repainting Fuchs also, and they said _they_
cannot do a two -tone like a painted and polished wheel - unless it's a 2
piece wheel. Had to be one or the other. The Fuch is, I believe, supposed
to have painted and polished areas. As for a cost datapoint - standard
price was $99/wheel - but extra for painting the whole wheel instead of the
face only, and extra for a non-stock color.
HTH a little

You'll all have to forgive my ignorance, but can someone give me some
basics on what it takes to make wheels look nice again? A guy on
Audifans is selling some Fuchs that have some curb rash, a few
scratches on the faces but look good otherwise. Is curb rash
repairable? How do you repair an aluminum rim?
I ask because I'm tired of rolling around with these terrible 16" 5
spokes I've got on my car and I much prefer the look of the Urq with
the Fuchs on it.
