Hi guys

I’m in the leicester area, anyone know of a decent wheel refurb place. I’ve used the stealers before and at £90 a corner the job was ok not brilliant as the lacquer started to peel off not long after.

Any recommendations would be welcomed!

Thanks

Woah

Drop them off to midland wheel refurbs in bham, 50 per corner including straightening if needed, less if just a straightforward refurb.

Yep got me be done there too, they will powder coat them rather than spray. Its a better finish...

Drop it first thing in the morning and spend the day in Birmingham, will be ready by the afternoon...

As said above powder coating is the only way to go, remove everything, bead blast, powder coat, bake, lacquer and bake.

It's a proper job and often better than original finish.

I use this place and this is the proper process

Hi chaps thanks for all you replies! I have been researching online and speaking to all the companies mentioned! I have learnt a lot regarding smart repairs full wheel refurbishment etc and still left Undecided. Would prefer someone still in the leicester area as it's difficult to take time off to go out of town at the moment.

Thanks for getting back and will keep you posted!
