Wheel refurb in Edinburgh area?
 
Just wondering if anyone has a recommendation or experience of Edinburgh or local area wheel refurbishment companies?

Looking to get my BMW's MV3 sorted out, some horrible kerbing and a couple of cracks requiring welding. Grim.

You could have a look at The Wheel Specialist https://www.google.com/maps/place/Th...08!4d-3.297659

They're a national franchise operation but if you called in you'd be able to judge the quality of their results for yourself and get a quote.

I had the style 32s off my e39 done at the Inverness branch soon after they opened there, and was very pleased with the price & results.

Are you going for painted or powdercoated?

I think I would prefer powder coating for a longer lasting finish?

Wheel Specialist are not far from me at all. Another outfit are even closer (Wheel Pro Scotland) but I don't know anyone who has used either of them!

Thanks for your input.

Mine were powder coated, lasted well and still looked good when I sold the car 4 years later. :thumb:

The only one I could suggest is Scotwheels, had my old vRS wheel refurbed and they did a cracking job, plus only about 45 per wheel for a colour change and refurb.
Their based in Perth but are also mobile so may be worth dropping them a message on FB and see if they'll cover your area.

Foz in Clackmannan are superb, had mine refurbed by them and happy to recommend them:

Mine where 18" cades (badly kerbed), all fixed and shadow chromed for under 300 all in.
