    Default Diamond Cutting Wheels.....

    I'm off out tomorrow to see about getting my wheels refurb'd and DImond Cut, as it looks like i have missed out on Penfold's Snowflake's.

    Any idea how much Diamond Cutting cost's???

    not too much extra over a standard finish, i would expect to pay around 60 quid a corner.

    i was advised against this type of finish on anything other than show wheels, because as soon as the lacquer gets a chip or scuff in it it starts to corrode really quickly, and looks quite unsightly.

    if you do many miles then i think it's going to cause you alot of grief

    Nice one, thanks for that info Harry.

    I shall probably just get them refurb'd and give the diamond cut finish a miss then.

    I do use the car a fair bit, and am not the most dilligent of car cleaners.
