Alloy wheel refurbishment in South West UK

This is of specific interest to anyone in the South West UK/Bristol area.

I had my alloy wheels refurbished 2 weeks ago in original factory colour. The previous owner had used spray paint to spruce them up. YUK
After calling round I decided to go to -
"The Wheel Specialist Bristol" in Avonmouth because they took the time to explain everything to me.
They have the sand blaster, spray booth and oven recently installed as they only started up a short time ago.
It has only been a short time since the Wheels were done but they look brilliant - like factory fresh.
The owner (It's a franchise) -John Leggat - seems a very professional man who explained in detail the procedure.
They have a wide range of finishes available and offer a 1 year guarantee.
I heartily recommend them.

Usual disclaimers apply.

The Wheel Specialist Bristol, Unit 3B, Severnside Trading Estate, Avonmouth, Bristol, BS11 9YQ. Tel: 01173 327778

Thanks for the information - they seem to be very highly regarded.


I need to get the alloys on my SLK32 AMG refurbished - do you know whether they can do a 4-wheel refurb. within a day? Rough cost?

Hi,

They did mine between 10am & 5pm only problem is Avonmouth Area is a Tip so I went back home.

My wheels had no "ding's" on them so it cost me 60 per wheel.

If you want to look at mine I'm in BS16.

Regards

Mike
