Hi

Can anybody recommend a good wheel refurbishing company around the Hinckley/Leicester/Nuneaton area?

My 2001 S 320L alloys are starting to blister in a couple of places. :(

Perfection Alloys i have not got number to hand but they are in phone book.

They did my AMG alloys on my last car for £45 per corner and belive me they were tatty and the results they gave were great and you get 12 months warranty.

That is a better price for sure and more what the job is worth for a single finish

Yes and they did a very good job, wheels looked new and they come to your house or work so no hanging around waiting at some unit, took about 4 hours but when at home you don't mind.

I always refurb my own alloys (assuming they're not diamond cut). Takes a bit of elbow grease, but can be done in your garage for about £30. Gotta get lotsa tough clearcoat on though :razz:

Finally got round to doing it with a local lad who comes to the house and was well recommended by a lot of people.

Done a good job. he actually has Audi and VW contracts!

.... too many cars!
Thats a good price. I get my wheels done locally by a guy who does a great job for €50 a wheel. He blasts the wheels with baking soda which leaves the aluminium spotless with out digging into the metal. Its great!

2 wheels had been badly kerbed and now you cannot see the problem. Lot of corrrosion on one wheel.

he came to the house, rubbed it all down and repainted front and back. Took about 6 hours at it.

he also has a mercedes contract with one of the stealerships and did a great job.
