Item Description:

The German Wheel Restoration Kit is designed to refinish bare metal wheels and replicate an authentic European silver wheel finish. This four-part kit includes a cleaner, primer, silver base coat, and high gloss final coat. For best results remove the wheels from the vehicle and strip off the existing finish.

The German Wheel Restoration Kit includes products made in Germany by Wurth and 1Z Einszett. Both companies are European leaders in car care and their refinishing products are considered best in class.

Wurth Clean Solve, 15 oz.
Wurth Clean-Solve is a fast acting cleaner and solvent that will quickly remove wax, tar, gum, grease, paint over-spray, adhesive, oil, and silicone. Clean-Solve can be used on a variety of surfaces including: base coat, clear coat, aluminum, fiberglass, wood, glass, fabrics, vinyls, and even carpeting. Clean-Solve does not leave any film. Use Wurth Clean Solve with the the Wolfgang Finger Pockets and All Purpose Microfiber towel to remove any residues that could interfere with priming prior to using Wurth Self Etch Primer.

Wurth Self Etch Primer, 12 oz.
Use Wurth Self Etch Primer to prepare painted wheels for refinishing. This fast drying formula has excellent sanding properties, filling properties, and strong adhesion to all metals and other surfaces. Remove the wheel finish first, than apply Wurth Self Etch Primer in several light coats. Allow several hours to dry before painting with color.

1Z Einszett Silber “Silver Wheel Lacquer” Spray 13.5 oz.
1Z Einszett German Alloy Silver Wheel Lacquer is a fast-drying lacquer that matches the standard alloy wheel paint use by Porsche, BMW, Mercedes, VW, Audi and most other European OEMs. Einszett German Alloy Silver Wheel Lacquer can be effectively used for spot repairs or full wheel restoration. The German design nozzle produces a fine, even spray that is easy to control and produces a near-factory finish. Einszett German Alloy Silver Wheel Lacquer dries quickly and is chip resistant. Use several very light coats and allow 30 minutes drying time between coats. The silver color coat will have a textured look and feel that provides a three dimensional effect when properly

Wurth High Gloss Clear Lacquer, 13.5 oz.
Wurth High Gloss Clear Lacquer is the final high-gloss coat to achieve the perfect European wheel finish. For best results spray 2 to 3 light coats about 30 minutes apart, in temperatures between 70 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit. After the final coat give several long hours to dry then enjoy your work in the sun.

2 Wolfgang Finger Pockets
Clean and polish tight spaces with the European green foam Wolfgang Finger Pockets. These pockets fit over 2 to 4 fingers snugly you can maneuver them into hard-to-reach areas. Use these finger pockets to clean the wheel thoroughly before painting or to maintain the wheel after refinishing.

16 x 16 All Purpose Microfiber Towel
Use these microfiber detailing towels for drying, buffing, or as a finishing wipe down. Microfiber is designed to be light, strong, super-absorbent and quick drying. The fibers are non-abrasive, and are woven so tightly that it’s absolutely lint free and extremely durable. Unbelievably, these ultra-tough fibers are engineered to absorb seven times their weight in moisture.

Directions and Tips

Start by removing the wheels to be painted and remove the existing finish completely. Clean the surface with Wurth Prep-Solve to remove any lingering smudges or grease that could interfere with priming.

Prime the wheel with several light coats of Wurth Self Etch Primer and allow to dry for several hours.

Apply 2 to 3 coats of 1Z Einszett Silber “Silver Wheel Lacquer” Spray 30 minutes apart until even coverage is achieved. It is always better to apply thin coats and build the color coat from there instead of doing one thick coat that could run or sag. Allow to dry completely before next step.

Complete your total German wheel restoration with 2 to 3 light coats of Wurth High Gloss Clear Lacquer. Allow to dry completely before driving.

Better Than Expected
January 5, 2014
This product worked great, better than expected. I am very happy with the result. The job is going to take a while, the pre-cleaning and prepping probably takes more work than the paint application, but I think it's VERY important to do that part well so the paint will stick. I am very happy with the way they look. Also, I bought two systems for four wheels, but really only needed one.
Pros:
Inexpensive way to bring your wheels to life
Cons:
Nothing

phone dial wheels
October 7, 2013
My1984 944 sat neglected in my driveway for 12 years. For some reason the finish on the wheels on one side of the car was completely gone leaving a hard white aluminum oxide. The wheels on the other side looked brand new. With a little effort they now all look factory new even placing them side by side. The technique I used was sand smooth using 600 grit and WD-40(WET)"yes WD-40" and light pressure then to spray two coats of the primer then sand (DRY) with 600 grit and light pressure. then spray two coats of the color then sand with 400 then 600 then 1000 grit and WD-40 (WET) again using light pressure. Then one last coat of color(do not sand). Repeat the same steps for the clear as for the color. just two last notes 1) get yourself some high quality white microfiber wipes and make sure to clean thoroughly (using the cleaner provided) and new wipes between each sanding step until you see nothing coming off on the wipes . 2) For the two wheels I needed 1 more can of each of the color & clear.
Pros:
awesome results
Cons:
nothing

Unfortunately, the kit does not work on the machined edges of the AMG wheels (2012.)
Pros:
It looks like it provides almost everything needed.

Good as advertised
July 19, 2012
HAd to wait on backorder, but once the package was delivered - perfect. Went via how-to guide and wheel repair for by VW was perfect! Only other materials I had to buy were filler putty and some wet-dry sandpaper. Follow the guide to the T - ESPECIALLY when cleaning, masking, sanding, and waiting.
