Wheel Refurb Bristol area

Hi,

Having done a great job kerbing my front-left yesterday, I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations of any mobile alloy-repair guys who worked in the Bristol area?

Also any rough guide on how much I'd be expecting to pay would be appreciated.

Cheers

My neighbour has recommended a place in Swindon who provide a courtesy car.

I don't know anybody in Bristol but like you have fu@ked my alloys too but thought about upgrading then selling my mv3s.

Never tried them. Heard that the smart repairs do not have great longevity....

Wouldn't touch a mobile repair.

Lepson's in Swindon is the gold standard of wheel refurbishment

Sure, I read good things - but can't really be without my car, and Swindon is a bit of a walk home

Ring lepsons, they may have something you can use, or you could rock up and wait.
Others do this, you can go shopping for a day

Otherwise get a cheap set of wheels on eBay then sell them on again.
Plenty of people on here would take them as winters or for the same reasons.
