Relief for Ragged Rims

Stylish wheels have become standard equipment on a majority of today's cars and trucks. But, if your rims are scratched or damaged, their appearance can be embarrassing and bring down the value of your vehicle. Regardless of where you drive and how careful you are, wheel damage is hard to avoid. Your wheels can easily suffer dings and scratches from stones, road debris and potholes, as well as dulling, pitting and corrosion from car wash chemicals and the effects of weather.

Fortunately, there is an easy solution to the problem, and you don't have to lay out big bucks for new wheels or take your damaged ones to a repair shop. You can fix your wheels yourself to a "like new" condition and save hundreds of dollars in the process with an easy-to-use Wheel Restoration Kit developed by Permatex, a leading innovator of automotive repair and appearance products.

The Permatex Wheel Restoration Kit can help you fix the damaged surface on your wheels and restore the original silver metallic finish and overall appearance. The kit comes with simple, step-by-step instructions and everything you need for a professional looking restoration, including a premium, high performance wheel paint. The finished repair is permanent and resistant to chemicals, brake dust, heat, and chipping.
