Monza Refurb - What sells best.
« on: December 30, 2018, 11:18:15 PM »
I have a set of Monzas I used for spares. They are no longer any use to me I refurbish wheels for a living and looking at refurbishing and selling them on. What tends to sell best, full original grey and diamond cut or keep it simple with plain silver. Going to be looking for around £450.

I would suggest the diamond cut but with gloss black insets and lip.
Def best look by far but hard to maintain.

I would go for diamond cut - I've just done my Monza wheels and spent near that getting them refurbed so £450 for a refurbed set would be a bargain.

That’s what I did, Mk6 style. Looks better esp on a black car. Cost @£100 per wheel 4 years ago.....

How well have they held up and any white worm appeared?
Not much you can do to prevent stone chips.
Do you give them much maintenance?

The answers to these questions really come down to how well the the job is done and keeping the wheels away from curbs. Avoiding acidic wheel cleaners is also a good idea.

But not a lot you can do to avoid stone chips.
I even have a few in my powder coated Monzas  :sad1:

Cheers. I'll probably go with the black and diamond cut. We powder coat lacquer too with diamond cut and colours. So if you guys need a set doing on the car in Essex send me a message but the set I have will be up for sale around February time.

How did the refurb go?

Are you selling them as I might be interested?
