Personally as i would doubt my own abilities to get a finish that i would be happy with using those sort of kits, I would not use them and would prefer to get a full refurb for between £40-£50 per wheel. BUT if you are convident in using them, why not get stuck in:)

It mentions "brush" by each of the paints so would guess its only suitable for kerbing / rim damage rather than complete repaint. :dunno:

Getting a decent result when doing wheels yourself takes time, LOTS of effort and LOTS of patience. For the sake of £50 a corner i would get it done by a company. I did a set that were in a right 2 and 8. It took me WEEKS to strip, fill and prep. Then you have to put several coats of primer on (using wet and dry after each coat). It is too much effort unless you have a spare wheel to put on your car and lots of spare time. If you cut any corners the results will show. Staights will be a nightmare to work on too due to the design. Imagine sanding/wet and dry along every spoke:err:
