Wheel Refurb - East Midland / Nottingham

Hi

Has anyone of you came across a good alloy wheel refurb company at East Midland / Nottingham?

I am currently looking for a reputable one, wanting to refurb my set of wheels ready for summer

Cheers
Sam

Hi Sam, I had one refurbed here last week;
http://www.thewheelspecialist.co.uk/...ns/nottingham/

I'd asked at Sytner but they wanted to send the wheel off as its a diamond cut, their guy recommended the people above as an alternative and they did a fantastic job. Car was in at sytners for warranty work, they came and picked the wheel up from the Garage, even offered to bring it back for when my car was finished. I picked it up myself though as I wanted to check the work before paying as its the first time I had used them.
Shouldn't have worried, great job, not the cheapest but you get what you pay for, I didn't think 60 + vat was unreasonable though.
I had a good look around and they were doing ferrari wheels for graypaul!
They might remember me, sure they will look after you if you mention Che had recommended them off here

Thanks Che,

Got a quote back from this company couple of days ago. As you said, they are not the cheapest. I might pop round to have a look and see what finishes they have available.

Definitely recommend going and having a look, they have a good display of wheels on the reception wall showing many of he colours and finishes they do, definitely helped in my decision. Hope you get them sorted, let me know how you get on
