No, you're not nuts. I too like the look of turbinas and bought a set to replace my BWAs. Doing so is still on my todo list.

I think they only look good if kept clean of brake dust.. Then they are very nice IMO. The brake dust does take away the look if allowed to accumulate and more obvious especially on these as opposed to other wheels. Keep 'em wiped clean and they are a smashing look. Of course, Daytonas are the best look but the Turbinas are a practical alternative that won't break the bank roll.

I’m not currently running turbina’s but have a liking for them. Sure hope the popularity rises, I have a few sets, yes sets. Don’t ask how that happened, I don’t know myself.
Here’s a sample of what I redid awhile back
And agree, when clean they look stunning

They are about as light as you can get. @Alfaaboutvegas I’m interested on how you refinished them.

Never too many Alfas

Like @Spiderbill, I’m interested in learning how you refinished your turbinas. I just scored a decent but scruffy set of Maifrini Mille Miglia wheels that are Mg alloy and want to refinish them. Thanks in advance.

Did some hunting around the bb for refinishing Mg wheels. Found this excellent thread:
https://www.alfabb.com/#/topics/666090
and after reading through the thread and hunting the web some more, I found a really good description of the process that I’ll post in a minute.
