When it comes to parallel parking there are very few of us have escaped the pain and anguish of kerbing our beloved alloy wheels. As hard as we try those pesky kerbs always find a way of scraping the face of our wheels inflicting permanent, unsightly damage. Some of us fare worse than others and have alloy wheels whose faces resemble cheese graters.
If you’re like me living with the damage isn’t an option. I HAVE to have it sorted out! Which is where another round of anguish starts. Who do I trust to do my wheels? There are plenty of options and price ranges and a quick Google of wheel refurbishment in your area will uncover a plethora of companies vying for your business.
But who to use….
You have to consider what you would like to achieve. Do you want a permanent, OEM quality repair that will be indistinguishable from the original wheel but cost a little bit more, or, a SMART repair that is cheaper, looks nice for a while but will start to peel and corrode before too long. The OEM quality repair will refurbish the whole wheel and takes longer, the SMART repair refurbishes only the face and is done in a couple of hours at your home/work.
Your choice comes down to quality and cost essentially. My personal preference, and one I always encourage, is to have an OEM quality repair especially for Diamond Cut wheels. SMART repairs on those are incredibly poor.
The only Alloy Wheel Refurbishment Service we offer is geared up to offer the best quality possible with cost taking a back seat and all of our refurbished wheels come with a 12 month guarantee. Having said that a set of 4 18″ alloy wheels fully stripped, repaired, refurbished, tyres refitted and wheels protected with a ceramic coating is just £360 – that’s only £90 per wheel. When you consider the price of OEM wheels that’s a bargain.
