refurb alloys

Post by james butler » Sat Jan 26, 2013 12:07 pm

hi everyone,
i really need to get my rims refurbed but dont know wheres the best place to take them in brum.
theres a guy down the road called wizard on wheels but seems to be a man in a van with no real depot so to speak.
i really dont want to end up with touched up alloys.
i really want them stripped and refinished.
im not looking for perfection but at the same time dont want to run over a pothole and find a complete rim shape piece of filler and paint on the floor


I dont mind project cars but I HATE SANDING!!!

Someone on here recommended http://www.thewheelspecialist.co.uk who have branches around the country - our nearest is in Erdington. They provide online quotes as well. From their website it seems like they'd do a proper job.

City powdercoating is very cheap.

I've never used them as they're a bit far away for me. From the reviews I've read they're anything from really good to really bad. However, if they do a bad job you just tell them to do them again :mafia:
