Alloy Wheel Repairs & Refurbishment.

 

When it comes to repairing kerbed scuffs & paint defects there are few people lucky enough to have the facilities to do it themselves. That's why we're providing a list of the best companies who can fix those problems, all over the UK.

In collecting this data we asked the once

Managing Director of AWI Wolfrace Wheels, to call each company on behalf of 350Z-UK and confirm their repair system is acceptable to Original Equipment Wheels.

Please Mention "350Z-UK" when you call.

Although most alloy wheels can be repaired by diamond wheel's mobile service, it soon became apparent that some wheels needed that extra touch to return them to their former glory. In January 2004, they expanded the alloy refurbishment service by opening up a work shop in Stockport, Cheshire which operates a same day drive in service.

This is exactly the look I am after on my Rays. Could I ask what colour that is?

 

My Z is a GM and really struggling to find a colour to go with it which wont be black or GM.

I went to MyAlloys in Basingstoke.

 

£60+vat per wheel. Centre caps £8+vat each. One wheel needed straightening which was £25+vat.

 

Seemed like a good professional business, quite a big place with lots of cars there - some of which were very expensive!

 

As there was some corrosion they advised against the standard matt silver finish and instead advised a sparkly silver colour. They cleaned up the corrosion and the edges (which look perfect now), then did a powder coat base, paint, then powder lacquer. Wheels are spot on apart from the fact that where the straightening process (I assume) left some indentations combined with some little raised bits they did not smooth them off before painting. On the inside of the rim so can't really be seen. I had tyres sent there from black circles (cheaper than from MyAlloys) and they fitted them at no additional cost.

 

Here's a couple of pics:

Jesus 52 quid a rim.....I can only make it economical to reface them for that never mind full refurbish the whole rim.

 

Looks a cracking job too

That is + the dreaded VAT but still a good deal I thought, I've used him for years as I had an Ex that thought bouncing up kerbs was a good idea so kept him in regular business :D
