Thanks for watching! In this video, I'm restoring the four BBS wheels from the E30 325i. Heavily curb rashed BMW style 5's. It was quite the task. They didn't turn out perfect but I was a little bit low on time on this one.

  • not the proper way to repair a wheel, where material gone, sanding will not repair that. You have to add aluminum and then get to the proper measurements sanding... but adding material, not sanding the imperfections only

  • Just a tip: You should do something to remove scratches from the windshield, or just replace it. It really reveals the age of a car when the sun hits it in the right angle.

  • This might be a silly question but wouldn’t it be easier to just sand blast the entire wheel, removing all the old paint and most of the perfections, and preparing the surface for optimal primer or powder coating adhesion?

  • I'd be careful mixing the filler on regular paper as it can absorb water and distort the proper mixture of each component. Better to use a non-absorptive surface like a slab of granite or glass etc. Cheers!

  • 1 minute forced advert? At least give the time stamp to jump straight into the video. Screwdriver as a pry tool against plastic and aluminium? You could have had the guys removed the valves for you when discarding the tyres. Isn't the tyre mark supposed to match up to the valve stem? It's a basic way of telling if your tyre has slipped on the bead and likely need a re-balancing.

  • It's as if BMW decided to put every effort and design trick possible to make these hubs a pain in the bum to prepare. Strangely - in grey primer before sanding they looked quite nice. In a perverse moment I almost said "STOP! That will do nicely." You are going to have to store this car in a clean room. Taking it outside would spoil it.

Can I use this type of filler and have them chrome plated? Or will that melt the filler? The centers and barrels will be painted like you did
