My 2007 XKR has the optional 20" wheels, with the usual curb rash thereon. I'd like to get them repaird and painted. The body shop that will do this feels that the small bolts that line the circumfrence need to come out. This does not appear to be a two piece wheel, so I'm assuming that the bolts are effectivly ornamental, and should come out with out any fuss. Anybody have any experience with this?
Are those the BBS wheels? My 2005 has the 2 piece BBS wheels with those small bolts you speak of. They can be removed and put back in, using blue Loctite and torquing to 15Nm. The bolts on mine took an 8mm splined bit.
Post a picture or send me one at email@example.com and I will know more about the rims.
