    Question Alloy Wheel Refurb? RS6 (KENT)

    Just got some A3 S-line (RS6) alloys.

    Problem is they could do with being refurbished and I don’t know where to take them?

    Also not sure if I should get them painted?
    What I have....


    RS6 in anthracite....




    Other option is I swap these with my brothers alloys and get them refurbished and possibly painted?


    Opinions please

    Please post pictures or links if you have either of these alloys on your car. Help me

    Lepsons have a good reputation though I've not used them myself. They're based in Gillingham.

    yep...what they said!!

    Lepsons are very good. They sorted these out for me, had horrific water ingress under the lacker and looked way too scrappy for my liking. The wheels had to be split and put back together with all new bolts etc, not a job for your average wheel refurb cowboys. Lepsons did a top job and wheels came back looking spot on!

    Can't argue with that, what N8 doesn't know about wheels, ain't worth knowing!

    I have just been quoted a price of Ł45 + VAT per wheel from Whicked Wheels
    Will check out Lepsons as they appear very popular

    Thats not too bad, quite a bit cheaper than what mine were, but they were a proper 2-piece wheel.

    Are you going ahead with it?

    That's a reasonable price for their service.
    I might give them a go when the weather improves.

    Kerbs where I live scratch the alloys when the driver is away....

    Yes i will do, just finding out what they offer in the way of tyres too.
    2004 TDi sport wheels will be up for sale when I have my new wheels sorted if anyone is interested.

    Have you decided whether to just get them refurbished or refurbished and painted anthracite? I have these alloys and I've toyed with the idea of getting painted anthracite... I'd love a new set of wheels but can;t afford it at the moment. It'd be good to see what you go for - keep us updated!

    Do Lepsons arrange the courier and boxes or do you have to do that yourself?

    Nice job. And yes, car needs lowering. Just like mine.
    Did you end up paying Ł217 for all four wheels (if you don't mind me asking) ?
