Bit anal but is there anything to bring the rear brake disc centres back to a new looking condition? Just a bit grubby from the general life of a brake disc I suppose but I've noticed that since fitting the new wheels that more disc is visible, so it would look better a bit cleaner.

High temp aluminium paint from halfords worked for me.

How do they last, I'm a bit reluctant to start painting as it might not go as planned either that or have to keep on top of them.

Mine haven't been too bad. I put lacquer on top and as long as you clean from time to time it's ok. Mine could do with doing again ideally. Have you tried wonder wheels or anything like that to clean them up?

When you buy new discs get them zinc plated. Gives them a nice gold finish. Then the faces wear down but the rest of the disc surfaces stays corrosion free. Had it done on a previous car and it looked mint.

I just masked my disc up and used normal silver paint, Barton chemicals stuff, works a treat.
