    Default Alloy refurb

    Am getting my alloys refurbed here
    http://www.thewheelspecialist.co.uk/index.php
    on Wednesday at the newly opened Leeds branch which is in Garforth
    This is what they look like at the moment

    So will report back on how good they look.
    Undecided about going for smoked chrome or normal silver. If I stay with the silver than thinking about getting the middles for the alooys that irmscher do. What do you think??

    See my wheels and tyres for sale on here, they have a good 6mm of tread and wheels have been recently re-furbed also.

    I can e-mail you some pictures if you require.

    Got the car back from having the alloys done and boy do they look a treat.




    It hard to tell from the pic but ended up going for a black chrome finish which looks silver until you get close then it's a very shiny dark grey.

    Have to highly recommend the chap at the Leeds branch of http://www.thewheelspecialist.co.uk/
    He was so helpful explaining how flash chrome wouldn't work and also thanks to Shan for his help in getting me lots of discount. In the end it cost me £276 for all 4 alloys removed from car, tyers removed, completely refurbished, tyres back on and balanced. He even put me some nice shiny valve caps on.
