    Would definetely recommend them!

    Nice job, they look great. Expensive though, most places around me charge about 40 per wheel.

    Nice one, I guess it costs more cause they powder coat them, and then have to balance the wheels again, although you get what you pay for, so looks like quality.

    I had mine done, and the lacquer coat has started peeling, but they did not remove the tire.

    All you need to do now is learn how to park, and you are sorted ......

    lol my excuse is they came like that, i bought the wheels second hand and they were already kerbed.
    I heard alot of good reviews about this place thats why i went for it and i think it was worth the money

    looks nice job but a touch on the expensive side, i had my p1 alloys off my subaru done by a local company, there price varied upon what colours you choose i went for a gun metal with a kind of flake in it looked really nice in the sun light, it was one of the most expensive choice but was on 40 a rim to blast and powder coat, but to be honest my rims only had very minimal scuffs and i removed the rubber, as long as your happy mate.

    Looks good. They were pretty bad before though!

    Quite pleased with mine now i've seen your 'after' pics. Just one wheel has some kurbing on it thats all. They all shine well though!

    I think it must just be the light, i checked all 4 wheels thoroughly before i paid and they were all fine.
    Ianysm - did you refurb yours yourself? Got any pics?
