Anyone think these are worth refinishing? I do not know a lot about the wheels but I need rubber so new wheels now is an easy sell to my better half.Attached File  20190216_183845.jpg   31.82K   11 downloads

Yes, if they all look like the one shown, it will not be a difficult job.  I took 14 alloys back to bare metal, had the 100+ rims and 'spokes' polished before paint - baked the paint on in the oven 1 wheel at a time while the wifey was away (but not all at once).  Let sit in the basement for 8 weeks until the paint had fully set up, then multiple coats of clear lacquer.  Had 2 sets of 5 wheels for my sons' 2 Minis and spares.

 

You will not be polishing so essentially clean up, primer & paint.  Get the best paint you can from your local suppliers and follow directions closely.

They look like GB alloys to me.
