    Default Wheel refurbishing

    Looks like my challenge wheels could do with a bit of TLC after I removed them from the car over the weekend and gave them a good clean.
    Starting to see some corrosion break through in a couple of places on the wheels.

    Anyone have any recommendations on refurb shops?

    I dont know anyone down your way mate but make sure whoever does them, strips them and then paint and laquers them as there are some places that use a paint/laquer mix (usually the mobile ones) and these look **** within a few months

    Second that - had four 17" Merc wheels stripped, diamond cut, painted, laquered, tyres fitted and balanced with new valves for just under 200.00 and they collected and delivered free of charge.

    If you ring them ask for Andrew

    I did come across their site while doing my search but thought "Christ they're cheap. " but thought do they do a proper job?

    Had seen a place in Birmingham who turn over 4 wheels in a day but quoted me 95 a wheel for a set of 4.

    Can't see how a company can turn them round that quickly, what with preparation, priming, painting etc. - they need to be oven baked to harden the paintwork.

    Wheel refurbishing take between 2-5 days depending on what the repair is, and don't forget they collect and deliver
