alloy swirl marks

whilst swapping wheels a while ago i got harrased by the local kids down my road (mates little sister&co) any way i left two of the wheels on the floor and the kids started to jump on them, i thought nothing of it.

i forgot that kids wore stupid shoes with plastic soles didnt i now ive got two wheels with swirl marks caused by the kids

can you polish alloys like you can paint or do they need refubishing? i dont want to start T-cutting and make the whole thing worse any advice on what to do/use appreciated. renewal coming up so could do with getting rid

Re: alloy swirl marks

Autoglym paint restorer followed by super resin polish will get them out fella, or meguiars scratchX followed by a good polish, maybe put a little wax on after to seal them up

Re: alloy swirl marks

What dazzo said. The finish on late Alfa alloys is a laquered paint so polishing them should suffice.

Re: alloy swirl marks

They'll buff out, if the scratches are not through to the metallic silver, no sweat.:
