    'wheelclinic' Nothampton

    Has anyone used this company, been qoated £270 for a full refurb and power coat for all 4 of my alloys.
    So wanted to know if they are any good or not?

    Citypowder coaters in Birmingham will powder coat 4 wheels with the tyres taken off, put back on and balanced for £120.

    Here's the results.

    I have no axle stand to stand the car on to send the wheel off, so want somewhere local'ish where i can leave my car whilst i get the refurbed.
    Just been qoated £55 per wheel from Mint alloys in MK. What about them?

    Im surprised pristine even said they could straighten the alloy for you as they do state on there website that they wont refurb damaged wheels. Im sorry to hear about your bad experiance with them, but they do a very high standard of work which is why I would recomend them, although your idea of having them shipped is a fair one and plenty of people would recommend the place JoJo use's

    After looking at the website for wheel clinic i must admit it looks pretty good qaulity. I have been speaking to them via email and the £270 includes, tyres off, wheels stripped of paint, sand blasted, repaired (i have some deep kurb marks), primed, power coated, laquered, tyres refitted and balanced. They have the wheels (car in my case) for four days.
    They have a customer picture of an A3 on RS6 wheels in the exact colour i want and they do look good. So might give them a go.

    Just to let you know guys, I would give citypowder coaters 9/10 for finish, it's a good finish, but not 100% perfect! All I can add to this is, I car about my car looks, but these are wheels FFS, stones and all sorts are going to hit them anyways, £120 vs £270 is a no brainer in my opinion, plus they are down the road from me also.
