Thanks Paul


I think I am going another direction. What do you guys think these are worth? I told the seller I would ask around for him.

To strip the crap he sprayed on them off so you can repolish the wheels they have to be completely taken apart and aviation paint remover is needed to get the BS Dorociak sprayed on them off. That was years ago and I hope he's done with ripping people off by now.
He refinished my wheels 10 years ago and they still look great.

JFairman - Jim my last email that I can find from you was when I originally sold you new 4.75" RH outer rim halves was 6 - 30 - 2009. As I remember back 8 years ago I even bought (2) RH used rim halves from you after helping you resize your own wheels that you did the assembly on. Yes I did not tell you the exact name of the special clear coat used. I consider it a trade secret. I am shocked to hear about your unpleasant experience with me. jdorociak@gmail.com Jim

Can they be restored? Sure, but are they the right size for the car you are thinking about putting them on? Many times a resizing is needed or wanted such as I want an 11" vs a 10" and I am going to remove the rear spacer as Jim did on his 930 years ago when he resized his rear wheels.

So to really understand what it takes to restore a set of wheels first is do they fit correctly, if not what sizes are needed or wanted for the "look" . Next is verification that the set is straight/true and round. It does not make sense to restore a set of bent wheels. I have seen because of the age of the sets and the condition of the roads the cars are being driven on many sets that now require inner and outer rims need to be replaced so at this point it gets expensive and difficult to locate parts for special builds.

The set you are asking about is the Alessio wheels, which are not the most sought after Speedlines.
The center caps alone cost about $100 each and are most difficult to find (unique to this set of wheels)

So what car are these going to go on? What size do you want? What kind of finish do you want on the set?

When I build sets of Alessio wheels for Porsche friends they are priced in the $4100 range and up depending on sizes and finishes. I have found in the end it is cheaper to buy a restored, resized set vs buying a cheap set and the cost to build/refinish that set. Good luck. Jim jdorociak@gmail.com

I would be willing to take a look and make a reasonable offer.

FWIW these wheels can be bought new for $3400/set.
