    I got one of my snowflakes straightend in June at Carrick engineering in Prestwick. Staff were friendly, only cost £25 and was done in 2 hours. Can't fault them they also do alloy welding and powder coating etc if you require.

    As for cost i had a 4 wheel refurb as well as having two straightened the reburb,s came out at £55 each with the straightening being an extra £10.

    Just like to add they did a really good job of straightening the wheel.s one of them was so bad i thought it was a scrapper.
    After hiting a massive pot hole the wheel was pretty well unusable , but they sorted it
