Wheel Refurb Advice

Guys
I've just purchased a set of 3DSM alloys and they appear to have a diamond cut with a lacquer finish but are kerbed.
Can I sand down the offending edges and re-apply lacquer?

any advice is appreciated.

please see pics attached

thanks

You absolutely could just sand them down, go through the grade and either polish it up or put some lacquer over it.

But the edge will always have a different finish to the rest of the wheel.

You could sand the whole polished surface, then grey scotch the blue sections and then lacquer then whole wheel.

As long as you don't polish the unpainted sections, the lacquer should hold.

If you are going to keep the wheels for a while, than I would let them recut and refurb.
Or if you are very good with masking could only paint the lip.
But if you re-lacquer the repair you will always have a different finish.
