New owner. Car went straight to my mechanic and I've only laid eyes on it for an hour. I'm trying to figure out what 18s I have without being in front of it. I want to get them refinished because some have some seen some curbs in their day.

I understand the Fuchs were an upgrade, and I don't see it listed on my build sheet. Would you see that listed on a build sheet?

Also, are the tire sizes different between the Ronal and Fuchs? I read something that suggested that. The tire sizes match up to what the site suggested were Ronals.

So that's part 1. Part 2 is refinishing. If they are Ronals are they "worth" refinishing - I'm keeping things oem. Also, powder coat for refinishing in the hyper grey color sound right to you?

Thanks.

Here is the link I referred to which was helpful:


And looks like I read it too fast, because that page doesn't list any other OEM 18s other than the Ronal ones.

For those that have refinished these - got any tips on what to do and what not to do?
