Argente 650/6 2008 Alloy Wheels

Recommended Posts

I recently sold our Celtic Rambler 5th Wheel trailer to fund a house move.

 

Having now moved house I've purchased a 2008 Argente 650/6 to tide us over which is in very good condition apart from the alloy wheels.

The original wheels are the 5 spoke alloys which had a lacquered finish to them. The lacquer has deteriorated and subsequently the wheels look really poor.

 

Does anyone know what PCD and offset the wheels are so i could source some cheap similar ones rather that have the original ones refurbished?

Alternatively ring up a few caravan breakers. ........ ?

Probably best to contact an ex-Avondale dealer for that information, such as Raymond James, who now occupy the old Avondale factory site.

If you have the caravan why not measure them?

Why did I overlook the obvious? :blush:

Why not just whip off the wheels and take them to your nearest refurb centre? About 30-40 pounds per wheel and they be like new?

Google wheel refurbishment bromsgrove, ignore the first three (adverts) and there's a lot to choose from.

unfortunately they all do it, you may be able to do it yourself, IIRC on this style of wheel you can just remove the old lacquer, polish up the bare metal surface, then re lacquer them, the below article may help

Yeah i was thinking of flatting them off and spraying them with a rattle can.

 

Might have a go, if it looks bad i'll get them refurbished!

yeah is imagine a fine grade should get the old lacquer off, use an electric polisher to polish up the surface, then just re lacquer them, should look pretty good TBH

Hopefully I am collecting the Van next weekend so I can tackle the wheels then.

 

Might get the dual action polisher out with some cutting paste and see what results I get. Might even post a "How to Guide" if you're lucky!

That looks very much like just the lacquer coat has lifted from the 'diamond cut' alloys. We had a 2008 Avondale Osprey that was starting to go the same way within a year of new, but we traded that in before the problem be came too obvious. the earlier 'satin finish' alloys were not affected in the same way.

It should be possible to get them skimmed on a lathe and then re-lacquered, but it may be simpler and a lot cheaper to remove the lacquer coat and then paint them.
