    Alloy wheel refurbishment near Trowbridge - recommendations?

    Want to get my 18" BBS CHs refurbished and looking like new. Ideally without sending them away. Can anyone recommend a decent firm local to Trowbridge in Wiltshire? Has anyone used Kerbrefurb?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, I don't know of anyone local to you, but I am in the SMART repair game with Paintless Dent Removal and see a lot of the other stuff that goes on. I would avoid mobile wheel refurb as this is really just a quick fix to help dealers sell cars IMO. We have a company in Kent that does a fantastic job and they are the only people I'd recommend, they're called Lepsons in Gillingham Kent, I know they go up and down the country so may be worth a call as they may collect or arrange to collect ;-)

    If you do use the mobile service then I guess the best would be Wicked Wheels, at least they refurb in a controlled environment.

    I hope his helps

    I had a mobile wheel refurb company and all they did was sand and fill the curb marks which if I had a spray gun I could have done it myself,better off sending them away if you can as you will obtain a much better result.
    but saying that a man in a van would only be the quick fix and of course the cost v time is something to consider.

    Cheers. I'd rather have them done properly but until I get a spare set for winter tyres I can't send them away. I've just been told by the previous owner that he had two wheels refurbished previously by a mobile company, which explains why two of the wheels look newer. Two of the wheels look pretty good to be honest. But maybe I'll just have to wait. There are a couple of companies, one in Woburn Sands and one in Swindon that go the extra mile and the wheels come back looking like new. But I'm sure it's about £90 per wheel or more and it takes about 5 days.

    Depending on wheel size snd the type of finish required, it's more like £50-£60 to have them done properly.

    The company in Woburn sands have been there for many year's and from what I have heard they do a very good job but not used them myself....they are not too far from me but could not remember their name.i think they do some type of wheel exchange which will keep you mobile.they not cheap but you should get the best results.

    Cheers John. They're called Pristine Wheels. I work in Luton so it might be an option at some point.

    By proper job do people mean filling in kerb marks etc. or just a proper sandblast and powdercoat in the oven? I'm looking at getting my wheels done soon but want kerb damage filling in etc. so what kind of figure should I be looking at?

One wheel is worse than the others so I might go for an interim smart repair.
    Thanks mate.
