    Hi,

    Need to get the alloys refurbed on my daily driver. Front tyres are not sealing against the rim and I'm getting fed up of having to inflate them every 2/3 days.

    Came across these 3 on Google;

    http://www.wheelrefurbish.co.uk/

    http://alloywheelrefurbishmentuk.co.uk

    http://www.spraycraftrepairs.co.uk/


    Has anyone used them before or got any recommendations. I'm based in Warwick so ideally looking at somewhere no more than 25/30 miles away.

    I've used A1 in Walsall in the past, and while the finish looked good, I wasn't too impressed with how long that finish didn't last..


    Or has anyone used tyre sealant/tyre weld type stuff to repair the air loss?

    Even if for a few months, as ideally I was planning on holding off the refurb until the spring time....

    Thanks

    If you can make the journey down, I highly recommend Pristine Alloys in Wavendon, just outside of Milton Keynes. BMW use them to repair their alloys too and they've built up a great reputation in the area.

    IMHO there are 3 people worth considering:

    -City Powdercoaters: At £20 a wheel they are cheap. If you need the wheels back in a hurry I'd pay the £10 a wheel more ; some people I know of have waited weeks to get their wheels back otherwise.

    Their finish is better in terms of prepping and smoothness than other people but they do have a lack of finishes, which is why they are cheap I suspect ; they are all solid colours, so fine for a daily driver.

    A number of wheel refurbishing people also go to City themselves and then return the wheels to their customers.

    -The Wheel Specialist : Their finish isn't much better than City Powdercoaters but they can do a variety of finishes. I may well use them again for my M3 wheels who were previously done by them. They are a Shadow Chrome finish on my wheel which for me is spot on ; I use the car all year round.

    Their pricing is reasonable too.

    -Pristine Wheels/Alloys ; they are as good as people say they are and are based outside Milton Keynes

    Spraycraft IMHO weren't much better than City Powdercoaters and charged over double what City wanted ; For a set of Clio Turbines 15" alloys in Anthracite they wanted £400+VAT ; Even Pristine are a little cheaper!

    I think Wheels UK are meant to be as good as Pristine wheels from what someone else told me.
