Default Alcoa wheels

I have stock alcoa wheels. They were just professionally repolished, and sealed off. Come with stock lug nuts. I'm asking $250 OBO. I would prefer to keep the sale within driving distance to chicago, but will ship at buyers expense (should be no more then $100 for all 4 of the wheels). Let me know if you guys have any questions. Thanks

Rafal

by "just", do you mean a while ago? ...after these pictures were taken? were tires mounted on these rims after the repolishing? what are they "sealed off" with, exactly? and, just to be thorough, what was the professional firm that did this work?

I did the work on these rims as I offer a metal polishing service along with my detailing services. They were polished on a buffing wheel using White Rogue and Jewelers Rogue, and finished with wenol metal polish. They were sealed off with 2 application of Zaino's Clear seal which is very durable on wheels. I polished them last night after the tires have been removed. Just to give you an idea of my polishing here's a quick pic of turbo housing I just did for a customer:

May sound stupid to you, but I'd give 250 shipped to Al. I'd have to buy tires to fit that's why I'm low balling. I've followed the thread through several fourms, and you haven't had an offer so let's talk.

there were no aloca emblems on the wheels when I received them. I also did not remove the clear coating. I tried to get the dullness out using regular polish and compounds with little success, hence why I used a couple finishing polishes and they worked great, I wish I would have taken some before pictures to show the comparison on these.... they had no shine to them and were covered with baked on brake dust

After seeing them polished now it looks like a little more work than I expected. I have the means to chemically redo the metal, but even on my end that's not cheap. Let me know what shipping alone is, and from there we can set a price. And yes, I'm following these on the different sites.
