    Depends on what the places you get quotes from means by re-furb.

    I am looking at getting mine done and got my first quote from a well-regarding place that does the full treatment. They want £300 for all 4 wheels - that's stripping off the old paint/lacquer with acid, filling/welding/sanding the scrapes, power coating, baking, and lacquer finish. Individual wheels cost £80-£90 each.

    They should look as good or new - or better - and should last for ages. Well, they'd better for that price!
