If one of them you're thinking of is "city wheel refurbishment" then i'm picking my alloys up tomorrow morning, I can let you know how good they are (especially considering the atrocious condition i took the wheels in!)

They were just putting them back on at 530pm.

Awesome job, couldn't be happier. That was October last year and they are still like new to this day after 8k miles. Never had to use any wheel cleaner on them, just shampoo and a washmitt.

£300

Worth a trip to Grantham, and you get your car back the same day.

+1 For these guys, we take our customers wheels there for refurb/repair

That's what i did, not the prettiest of wheels but doesn't matter, the tyres were good and they were a little bit over £100, Cleaned up alright to with a little effort. Think mine were in and out within 2 days
