Mine have started to rust, noted that on the demonstrator BMW I've just purchased that they are quite bad...

Did you simply take the wheels off and clean down and paint? I'm thinking of doing this myself as they look hideous.

Surely you could just reject it ? :D

Yes. wheels off. Rub down rusty areas. Clean with brake cleaner. paint with very hi temp silver paint.

I'm wondering if hammerite smooth silver might be better at staving off the rust? Not sure how it would go with the temps down there though!
