A question not about my car for once!
We have a car in the household where one of the (2002 Yaris with 14" rims) alloys is losing air, its had a brand new tyre fitted so we know its not that, the fitter also wire brushed and applied sealant but this has not helped so the options as I...
I need to get me alloy wheels refurbed back to their original condition. Can anyone recommend where to go please? I'm based in Aylesbury if that makes a difference.
The car is a 2015 E63 Saloon.
I'll try to upload a photo. As you can see they are two-tone in colour...
With 105k miles and 27 years under her belt 460ft/lbs is beginning to show the failings of the old rear end – she needs a refurb.
I have got myself another sub-frame so the plan is to beef that up and fit new arms and LCA bushes. While it’s off I’ll fit some larger E280 brakes a 210mm 2.65...
Having a few issues with my C32 at the mo. The dash lights up and throws up a couple of errors & the gearbox goes in to what seems to be a limp mode where it won't change gear. The speedo also goes to zero.
If you pull over & restart the car drives fine for another few days untill...
Want to refurb the factory 18's that came on with the car while I am looking for the new wheels I want.
Just want a good painted finish, rather than diamond cut, as I have had enough of water ingression between the metal and lacquer with previous diamond cut finish alloys on other...
I want to get my alloys on my w203 c220 refurbished. I rang a company near to me, in Cardiff, and they quoted approximately £350, which I thought was a bit steep. What is a suitable price for 4 wheels? And does anyone recommend a company around the bridged/Cardiff/Newport/Swansea...
My car was in a couple of weeks ago getting the front bumper sprayed and i asked them to do the callipers for me. They did but as i was missing one of the metal plaques that clips on the side they did not do the one that was there. I managed to get another one and sprayed these myself. Seen as...
Bought a 2nd hand rear alloy recently which was in a less than perfect state, so armed with Halfords 744 Brilliant Silver, Primer and Laquer 400 Wet & Dry & Megs Cutting compound I had a go and refurbing it myself. Not perfect but a great improvement:
Apologies for the phone photos, I will take...
Had all 4 alloys refurbed at Lepsons.
This was about 2 years ago.
Wheels came back pristine.
2y later I can see this around some of the hubcaps
What is this? Seems to be some form of corrosion. Its not been scratched on anything.
These are my summer wheels and are taken off for...
Just wanted to throw a shout out to Pristine Wheels, who refurbed one of my C63 19" wheels and did an epic job.
They collected the wheel, refurbed it and returned it, for £111.60.
Absolutely no affiliation with them at all, just really impressed with the job they did :bannana:
