You can either do it yourself or have it done. At the same time, you could have them straighten. In Montreal, for $125 CDN they will do the whole job of straightening and painting. The wheel will be straighten first, then bead blasted, painted and clearcoated. But it can be done at home (except for the straightening). I recommand to chemically strip the old paint with a furniture paint remover. It will not harm the glossy finish of the aluminum under the paint. Then use some wet sand paper in different grades to remove scratches and old bits of paint. Go from 200 to 600 (pretty smooth). Then you can use Wurth’s silver paint and clear. This is a lot of work and at the end, you wish you had gone to a professionnal.
