Alloy Wheel Refurbishment

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I am living around Leamington Spa, and I want to get my wheels refurbished, as you can read in the title. Do you know a great place around Leamington warwick to do it ?? The problem is, the lotus is my daily drive, and I can't take off the wheels and leave them at the garage. 

 

I found Silverline wheels and tyres, not sure they offer this kind of service, but worth to ask this afternoon.

Can't you do them yourself? It isn't hard, just a bit time consuming*. :)

Well I can not do anything by myself because I don't even have a place to work on the car, and I want a full nice refurbish, get the wheel brand new, sort of at least. For information, Silverline is 90 +VAT per wheel, so no way ....

Can't you take one wheel off at a time, and refurb them in the garden? I tend to work outside, unless it's really cold, then I go in the garage and light the wood burner! biggrin.png

Just get plenty of wet & dry from course through to the fine grades, and get rubbing! smile.png

 

When I was younger I used to buy kerbed wheels and refurb them to sell them on. They come up like new with a bit of elbow grease. smile.png

 

Yeah, £90 per wheel is about the going rate. ohmy.png
