Repairing Alloy Wheel Lacquer

Does anyone have any suggestions what to use to repair the lacquer on alloy wheels. There are no scuffs but the original lacquer layer has flaked in one or two areas.

To be perfectly honest I'd just have the whole wheel repainted rather than attempt to repair a few flakes. It'll probably only cost around £25-£30.

I agree with tommy on this one, much easier to get the full wheel done.

you could sand it back and then re spray the lacquer, when ever I have done them that's what I do

I thought you guys would suggest that. The wheels have only been on the wife's car for a month or so.
