Exclamation Hartge classic 2, back in black

Hello,
NY roads are so bad that last fall I broke 2 rims at once. Anyways. This weekend I took them to be fixed in LI, and this is what I got back! =)
P.S. I did change the color of the rim to black just for the sake of it.

Any advice on how to fix the rusted calipers?

Vredestein

Thanks about the paint advice.
About the Vredestein:
1. Highway noise is not noticeable so far (new tires)
2. Much cheaper than Continental, which I had before
3. Traction in wet or dry as good as the last ones (Conti)
4. Bump/Pothole resistance much much better than continental
5. Tread pattern is very nice
6. I have 245 front and 285 rear. rims are 20 by 8.5 font and 20 by 9.5 rear. This does not bother the chassis or the ride at all. My friend has a 325i, and he cant fit my wheels on his. He also has an E90

Sidewall? what sidewall? haha. Believe me, it requires luck and skills not to destroy them riding NYC highways. In Delaware, thats another story. No problems!
