    Can any of you good folk recommend a place to get my wheels refurbed?

    I'm going to stick with the original anthracite colour, maybe a little darker but not black.

    In sure lots of people could recommend somewhere, but if you put a location you might find a good local place.

    Metal Magic at Barnsley.

    My 200 Speedlines are currently with them.

    Been using them for years - superb.

    Yes would be a good idea haha. I'm in Halifax but I'm prepared to travel within our region to get a good job :smile:

    What price do you pay? I've never had wheels refurbed before, is it a set price?

    Or try Midas touch in Castleford, or K M powder coating in Featherstone which @bashracing has used before and recommended to me when I asked in his turini sale post last week.

    If you've not got tyres id recommend Lsn in cas. If you've got tyres on them metal magic would be my recommendation.

    Hi mate, I pay £180 cash (regular customer rate) and basically drop all 4 wheels and tyres off with them, tyres removed, alloys dipped, stripped, kerbing repaired (welded and lathed back) and then powder coated, tyres refitted - takes about a week.
    They do have a same day drive in service but currently booked up until end of May.

    @Jon46 Did you end up getting your wheels refurbed? If so, who did you go with?

    Cool. I only ask as I've just got some more wheels and they're in ok condition but are a really dull silver so I want them done in a bright, flaky silver. Think I'm going to get quotes from Metal Magic (yes I've done that on purpose :wink: ), Midas Touch and LSN Coatings and see what the prices are like.

    Heard really good things about The Wheel Specialist, did a quote online ... £336 :frowning:

    I had my Meg wheels refurbed yesterday by LCS powdercoatings in Barnsley, 2 mins off junction 38 m1. Done a cracking job on mine, was done in the day and got a courtesy car (ford ka) I'd ask them for a price on fb mate! :smile:

    Not sure if colours make a difference etc, but for x4 18" megane alloys in anthracite I paid £220. That includes removing/ refitting tyres all done in same day!

    A years warranty with them too. I messaged them through Facebook and they're very responsive, there was a couple of weeks waiting time but that's obviously a good thing. They also do diamond cutting which is worth knowing! :smile:

    Yeah I looked on fb and saw they do turning. The wife's dci wheels are corroding on the turned faces so it's good to know somewhere close does them. I'm going to have a fight with Renault over them first though.

    In no rush, I just want somewhere that can take tyres off/refit and balance etc as I can't be bothered with the hassle or the extra cost to get that done elsewhere. Thanks for the replies :smile:

    I've used CAS Coatings in Bradford before, they just do blasting and powder coating, so if you need repair or tyres doing you need to find someone to do that.

    However it's £1 per inch on basic colours and £1.50 for anthracite, candy etc

    Took my new set of wheels to LCS Powder coatings last Saturday as was told they would do them Wednesday for me to collect Friday. I went up today (Friday) and they'd not been done. He said they were on with them and they would deliver to me this afternoon. I got a call to say one didn't take and needed blasting again and I wouldn't get them until Monday. No new wheels for me for FCS them. c***s.
