Been looking at buying a 57 Cooper, but it has white alloys, is it possible to refurb these to silver? Everything else is perfect with the car except the colour of the wheels.

Thanks in advance.

Probably work out cheaper to buy a second hand set of silver alloys and sell the white ones. There are always sets for sale on here and eBay.

Why not ask the dealer if they will swap the wheels with another car!

They have done it for me before swapped a set of 16" to 17" off another car.

Good Luck

Was just going to say, if its from a dealer it might be worth asking them to swap the wheels :) You never know, they might do it to secure the sale, dont ask, dont get :)

Thanks everyone, went to look at it and ended up buying a Cooper S instead with flame alloys! Pics to follow.

Out of curiosity i've always wondered what a set of pepper white rims would look like on a all pepper white car.I have the car but black rims and chrome lip,they match great with black fender trim,but was thinking about what the white ones would look like.:D
