    About how much does it cost to get a set of 17" alloys referb'd, they all have a few scraps and patches of paint corroded? Just a rough estimate. :laugh:

    I'm painting my own, is taken me freaking ages like but it's good to do. These refurbs only strip the edges and paint them, not the whole wheel, that's why its cheap.

    Just powder coating, the wheels i bought were curbed all the way round the rim but only light scratches so the coating filled these nicely.

    I just got a quote for £320 for 4x 18" RSTTs... thought that was a bit much.

    i phoned pristine near me and they said £68+vat per wheel which works out at £81 quid a wheel. bit of a rip off.

    He also asked me what car i had (after i said wheel size) which kinda seemed pointless then told me the price.

    Did mine myself, stripped back to bare metal and repainted in satin black, they came out really well but I took three weeks over them, only cost me a tenner each wheel though.

    I'm after a refurb for my 19 inch machine polished alloys. I'm guessing it's gonna be evil prices but it's 130 a wheel for me to buy brand new.... There's a place called viking repsprays near me that done 4 18 rs4 alloys for 120

    Dave Pristine have machine programs for different wheels which is probably why they asked which car, I had my wheels refurbed by them and my brother has had his alfa 18inc multispokes done by them and I'd be happy to recommend them as the quality of ther work is top notch.
