Thank you for your comprehensive reply to my questions and for the extra pics and I appreciate your thoughts of 19" v 20" certainly sounds like 19" is more my go.


Sadly my personality is such that no matter what the price I couldn't fit those wheels to my car due to the 2 minor blemishes you highlight, stupid I know but I am what I am.


I assume the only way to "fix" them properly would be to send them back to USA for re finishing.

LOL

It's Garageflex (was called Garagetek) and it's okay... It's kinda like a take on the french cleat system, but not as strong as timber, but looks much neater. Each shelf can only take about 32kgs from memory, so it's kinda limiting, but enough for 80% of the things I'd want to store off the ground.

Edit: "Storewall" is another alternative, and their hooks with the camlock system looks more secure.

I hear you... I applaud your attention to detail, it's not stupid at all.

Well then, if you were to buy these wheels, then yes you have a few obvious options:

1. Get them refinished here in Australia. There are plenty of shops who can replicate this "dark brushed clear" finish, but I would get all four done to make sure they match. But you and I both know that it won't be an exact match to HRE's finish.

2. Send them back to HRE and get them to re-do them. Shipping to the US isn't prohibitive IMHO, it's more a question of how much HRE will charge to re-paint them. You can see from the original invoice that they charged me $550 per wheel for the paint

3. As I said, the damage is PURELY to the paint alone, and the metal alloy is undamaged. So perhaps you could get a local wheel shop to fill the paint and airbrush the dark brushed finish back on? Airbrushers can do absolutely incredible work and can match any finish if they're good.

Thanks

I will contact the best wheel shop here in Melbourne to see what sort of money they want to refinish them don't mind if finish isn't 100% the same but your right will probably need to refinish all four to satisfy my anal nature.

Could you flick those pics of the damaged ones to me email it is only 2 wheels isn't it?

or text them

That way I can send pics to the shop for evaluation.

Thanks Clyde

Got them thanks, have forwarded to Wheel Solutions here in Melbourne to see what they think and costs involved.

Come back to you when I know more.

PS I don't want the tyres thanks too big a pain to ship with them on anyway
