Hey all,

I know its been asked before, but I cant find the previous thread(s).
Can anyone reccommend me an alloy wheel refurbisher in the belfast / ards / dundonald area?

I only need 2 wheels done, there is hardly a mark on them but the other two wheels had just been refurbed when I bought them a few months ago and the two that havnt been one look very dull in colour in comparison.

Any ideas how much it would be? As I said it wont be a big job.

Cheers

jus watch too lad that ur2 refurbed wheels dont come up better than the other 2 and mite look funny?
Yeah I had thought of that, the 2 that have been refurbed look like new so getting the other 2 done should be fine.

SeatSport - Any idea of the name of the place?

someone should make this topic sticky as it comes up so much! The Same 3 places come up over and over again as all doing fine jobs. Nu Luk seems to be a bit more expensive than the other 2, but i've never heard bad reports on any of them.

tried all 3 and nu-luk were the only ones to impress me, alloy wheel repair centre couldnt match the colour i was looking right although nu-luk got it perfect, and i would rate lester about the same as alloy wheel repair center, but then it all depends how good a job u want and how much money u have

their fine for matching a silver wheel but they cant match the likes of shadow chrome to save their lives, but yea for the money they do a gd job

Got quotes there:

Nu-luk were wanting £65 for each wheel (Thot that was a bit expensive)

AWRC were £45-50 per wheel

Its wild expensive considering the wheels Im wantin done are 15s, havnt a mark on them, thats just a strip & re-paint.
