    MTM Wheel Refurb Advice

    Does anyone know please if it is possible to refurb a set of kerbed alloys and then powder coat them from this style:

    Polshed Diamond Cut MTM Alloy.jpg


    To this:

    Basically, if they are originally manufactured in the polished /diamond cut style, do they have to stay in the same style.

    Many thanks,

    Hi,
    No, you can have them done to any style. But if they are polished/diamond cut it may take more prep time. But basically, yes they can be done like to how you want above.

    Many thanks Dan, that's the advice I was hoping for.
    They would be going to a professional refurb company where they are I think shot blasted, chemically stripped then powder coated and baked etc ( not 100% sure if that is the correct order )so time taken on prepping may not be too much of an issue. Basically the full treatment.
    Cheers

    Thanks QJ, they really do look good on a B6 or 7. Haven't quite got hold of them yet but fingers crossed a set might be coming my way very soon.

    Give or take around £200 for four (£30-£70 per wheel)

    Edit: not from experience though, wheels don't get refurbed within the lifespan of my cars as they either make constant love with curbs or are changed for new with originals sold making some money back.

    Lmao.

    The past refurbs i've had were about £55-£60 plus vat for an 18inch rim and thats for the full treatment I described earlier. Last one was about a year and a half ago so maybe slightly more now.
