Anyone Re-furbed Vignale Wheels?

Recommended Posts

Looking at having a full size spare and been offered a wheel in need of re-furb - as it's polished alloy rather than painted I wondered if anyone here has managed to re-polish this type of Vignale wheel?

OR anyone got any advice on how best to do it?

No Idea but are you sure it will fir in the wheel well? I looked in to having a full size 19" wheel as a spare on my MK4.5 Mondeo and it does not fit in the well.

Sorry should have made my position clearer - I was thinking that in the event I had to use the 'space saver wheel' I thought it would be useful to have a "spare" full size wheel that I could put on the car to replace the tempiorary wheel whilst the original was being repaired.

i know it would not fit in the wheel well so would be kept in the garage until needed

Having owned cars with low profile tyres before I would rather be ready for it happening :whistling:
