    Default How much does it cost to refurb alloys?

    I was cleaning the car yesterday and i noticed that there are a few places on my alloys that are starting to flake. Not really bad but still a pain in the ass.

    Roughly, does anyone know how much it costs to refurb ?

    cheers

    Anything from £50 - £100 per wheel. All depends on where you take it.

    Gregg,

    is it a case of leaving them with him? For that price i'd get all four done to get them looking new! I'd need to get some wheels to put on some how?

    Thanks,

    Robbie

    yeah he has them on the saturday and hopes to get them done by the sunday.

    It could be that you leave the car with the wheels on and he has all four corners supported whilst the wheels are off.

    Ill get you his email to discuss, drop me a pm to remind me as im off to work now till 8pm
