    Just seen your in the midlands. if your near Birmingham, the place that did mine is "city powder coaters" in digbeth. £80 for all 4, about a tenner a wheel more if you take them with the tyre on.

    That seems very cheap, I assume that doesn't include any re-facing of rims?

    No re facing, but if there's a little light kerb rash or corrosion, they will flat it and the powder does a good job of hiding it...
