FAQs

Refurbished alloy wheels in workshop at spit and polish

Price of refurbishment?

Please refer to alloy wheel refurbishment price list on the website (please note this is retail only, trade prices available) 

What process do you use?

 We always start from scratch, this involves stripping all existing finishes from the wheel, repairing any damage, painting the wheel, diamond cutting (if required) and finally lacquering. 

How long does the process take?

Normally 2-3 days, we do however offer a next day alloy wheel refurbishment service, this needs to be booked in advance 

What warranty do you offer?

Warranty depends on finish, wheels that have a painted all over finish have a 12 month warranty, wheels that are diamond cut have a 6 month warranty, there are however exclusions to these warranties, due to inherent faults with some wheels. 

Do you straighten wheels?

Yes, we can offer alloy wheel repair. We have specialist equipment and staff to deal with bent wheels, this is subject to seeing the damage prior to attempting the repair 

Do you weld cracks?

Yes, we have a fully qualified welder on site to deal with cracks and damage subject to inspection.

Do you diamond cut wheels?

Do you hand polish wheels?

No, we no longer offer this service.

Do you refurbish motorcycle wheels?

We can but due to the nature of these wheels they need to have all ancillary parts removed, bearings, discs etc , where diamond cutting is needed it might take longer than usual to do because of the time needed to make templates and machine both sides. 

Do you refurbish steel wheels?

Yes, but it should be noted if the wheel is heavily corroded it is sometimes difficult, using our process, to completely cover this damage. 

Do you refurbish wire wheels?

Yes, we do but the wheels should first be checked to make sure the spokes, splines and shells are in good order, if not it might be better to look into reconditioned wheels.

No, we no longer do these, they are so fraught with problems, particularly corrosion not evident until the original finish is removed.
