    Split rim refurb

    Hi all I currently have 18" speedline split rims and due to corrosion they need a refurb, I would like the centres in anthracite and polished rims, however I am struggling to find a company in the Midlands who are willing to break the wheels down they all say "we don't take splits apart" can the refurb be done satisfactory without splitting them?

    Then you can strip them pretty easy .Then you can get the face painted or powder coated
    And the barrel lips polished or diamond cut .I just refinished a set myself .Its pretty easy but time consuming .i will pm you what i did

    Go to Rainbow Polishing mate, 10 minutes away from you!

    Split them and get Rainbow to polish the dishes! Excellent value for money.
