    Wheel Refurb in South West?

    My RSTTs are looking a bit tatty right now and I'm looking to get them refurbed in the near future. Ideally need somewhere in Bristol, or if further afield, somewhere that does same-day service.

    I've heard Lepsons are really good but expensive and miles away. City Powder Coaters in Birmingham are closer, cheap but have heard mixed reviews. Wonder Wheels in Brizzle are close but have heard very mixed reviews.

    Anybody got any tips??

    Not yet. Emailed JB Autos weeks ago but had no response. My house is currently eating all my cash so may have to wait a month or so. Let us know if you get yours sorted.

    Finally got round to going up to JB Autos for a quote. £88 per wheel, plus VAT. I've no doubt it'll be good, but at £420 for 4 wheels that aren't too badly scuffed up, it's too expensive for me right now.

    Anyone got experience of any other good Bristol refurb places?
