The wheels are starting to look a real mess and a couple of them are starting to peel. I'm due some new tyres so i thought it was an ideal time to get them refurbed.
If I'm getting them done though I want it done properly, with them stripped back to the metal and then powder coated / painted in satin black (Not just someone in a car park touching them up).
Does anyone know if the original S2 Exige black wheels are powder coated or painted orignally?
I've had a good google around but just wondering if anyone has an personal recommendations and also how much you paid. These are two I've just asked for quotes from

Wheel specialist £360 (including removing/fitting tyres)
langly coatings £168 (don't do tyres so probably + £60 at local garage) £228
1st class alloys £252 (including removing/fitting tyres)
So I reckon that I'll go with 1st class. The price isn't much more than langley, and they seem to have lots of positive reviews online and Mr Simba. Plus less hassle as they'll do the tyres etc.

They do strip and shot blast the wheels first before coating them but don't expect perfection. Very happy for 2 sets of race wheels for a 20 year Toyota though !

4 years of S1 Elise ownership.
GGP shocks, PRT, headlamps, refurbed suspension, 2 'C' services, 1 Lakes meet, 10000 miles, one irresponsible driver in a car-park, an insurance claim and a full re-spray... and windows that go UP & DOWN!

I honestly can not recommend Paul highly enough, he does not compete against others on price, though he is very competitive, he competes on quality, you will find cheaper, but you will not find it better, and that's worth the premium.
