    Wheel Refurbs in the London and South East. Please tell me your experiences

    There's a few of us ASN members who live in the SE/London area and trying to find a decent well priced wheel refurb company is not easy.

    I've contacted over 10 local businesses this week and I'm not getting anywhere! I've spoken to places that want £250+ VAT and other places that want me to provide my own paint FFS. Nowhere down south seems to be able to challenge with City Powder Coaters in Brum City Powder Coaters Ltd. Birmingham. 0121 448 7646.

    Trooper has been a star and contacted the place he uses near Heathrow Airport and they will do a full acid dip, blast, refurb and green powder coat for me for £250 all inc for 4 17" wheels.

    Can anyone give me any ifo for any companies that you have used in the SE of England that wont cost a fortune. The wheels I want doing are for track use so I dont need a show finish. I will be happy to pay £50 a wheel.

    I fall into the interested member category.

    Are you sharing with the class, or is this a private party?

    Try the link below. We have had about 3 sets done there and it was about £200 all in. The quality of finish was decent too.

    They do quite a lot of colours mate so might be best to give them a ring. They even tried to sell me on getting mine done in pink when I went to have them done in gunmetal grey....................needless to say I passed up on the offer.....................nothing wrong with pink wheels of course if anyone has them

    You'll struggle to find anyone more professional than these guys: Lepsons | Alloy Wheel Repairs UK | Alloy Refurbishment | Refurbishments | Swindon | Gillingham

    I did a 280 mile round trip to drop my S3 there 5 years ago (when I had it) and they refurbed 3 of the 4 18" RSTT rims on it to perfection.
    The finished colour and standard of work was superb.

    hey quoted him £210 to do a set of 5 wheels without tyres in colour and powder coated. Looks like a winner so far as Rayleigh is only about 45 mins from me.

    I had my 18 inch OZ's done through Monty's wheels in Iver. Can't remember how much they were but I was happy.
