    loooks like his method works pretty good...there is also another guy who fixed his S4 wheels which had a bunch of damage and they came out really nice...I'll find the link and post it up...


    edit: here check this guys wheels out, he used the method shown in Zorro's post...http://forums.audiworld.com/s4/msgs/949926.phtml

    if anybody here plans on fixin their wheels like this...plz do post up before and after pics, I'm interested in seeing if this actually works for repairing "decently" damaged wheels (ie: a little bit more curb damage than these audi guys had..)

    he says: "Okay, here's where a bit of laziness is going to create an entire new clay-bar project. This metallic paint will GET EVERYWHERE. I'm talking permanently attached to the fender on the opposite corner of the car...mask CAREFULLY and COVER THE WHOLE CAR with a sheet or equivalent. "

    he covers the WHOLE CAR with plastic or whatever......when he could have simply took the wheel off

    Mark in theory shouldn't it work on any good quality wheel, as long as you match the colours correctly??...Cause Lord knows the Cyclone could use a lil wheel TLC...Thanks for posting this...

    Yeah any wheel it is just easier for geman wheels cause they all use the same paint, but if color matched it'll be fine...
