So my 2012 Sport wheels need lots of TLC. New England winters can be harsh with the salt and all. I have the stock wheels that look like this (left hand pic). The charcoal inserts are fine, but the "polished" face needs some love: clearcoat has chipped in lots of places and some oxidation has cropped up in places.
Buying a new set of wheels is out of the question (I need to stretch my $!) as is having someone come out and do this. I enjoy doing this sort of work, so that's my plan: sanding, polishing, etc. I've read every possible thread here on wheels and have looked elsewhere on the interweb, and now would just like a bit more feedback. It sounds as though my options are:
Do I have that right? I'm a bit hesitant with the clearcoat and not a big fan of the paint+clearcloat option.
What do people favor?
(I should add: I have a dremel, on top of regular drill.)
(one more edit: I've seen that temporary paint and wondered if that would be a good option for winter?)
