Prestige Wheels are very good. They're based at High Peak, but cover all over.

They do a very good mobile service I've used twice on my last 330i and and A3 I had. (they do all the dealer repairs too). The 330i repairs were still invisible 2 years later when I sold the car with 50,000 miles on .

And they also do the full wheels off strip / machine / paint and bake if you want back at their factory.

The Wheel Specialist. Near Ashton Old Road, Manchester.

I've not used this company personally, but a work collegue used them on his TVR Tuscan. I took him to collect the car after the work and they seemed very informative, friendly and enthusiastic. Very clean unit and althoulgh I can't remember the price, I thought it seemed reasonable at the time.

Let us know where you go in the end.

If you've not already sorted your wheels, I use a guy that Halliwell Jones (Chester) use for all their smart repairs.

Used him on two previous occasions and I've been pleased with the repairs.

I have his mobile number around somewhere....let me know he you still need it.
