Dear friends,

Renovating wheels now by powder coating rims and ordering new tires.
My hub caps however are in terrible shape.
Both with various cracks and rust all over.

As new (original 4x set from mb classic parts...) cost around 800 USD I consider other options.
1. Wrap the old ones with chrome vinyl...?
2. Paint with liquid chrome paint + clear coat.
3. Repair and chrome, the proper way (however in Sweden as expensive as buy new set...).
4. Find reproduction parts cheaper, but where...?

What is your recommendation?

Best Regards
Thomas

you can buy "do it your self" sets.
