Came across this place in Birmingham but have not used them. May be worth a punt at that price.

£12 for a chemical strip and blast.

Very, very cheap.

i saw these guys on web too,

was considering using them to get my SL wheels done but after the asking on here, it would be better to get wet spray

so may get the c class done from there and get the sl wheelys stripped and wet prayed local in cov.

Have been reading about them on some other forums and they seem to have some very good feedback.
Also only charge an extra £10 to remove and refit/balance your tyres

~Hi im not 100% sure yet as to where im going to get them done.

i know a few places and have a first choice but it all depends on price time and quality of the finish.

as mentioned im going to get them wet sprayed oppossed to powder coat.

are you in Coventry?

Laptab made a right mess of some BMW M sport Alloys we sent them, never used them since. Now use Metal Magic In Barnsley.17" £164 a full set fully refurbed, tyres demounted and remounted and wheels balanced. Service has been brilliant so far they will be getting SWMBO Explorer wheels when we get some better weather normal turnaround has been 3 days.

I posted the link to Citypowdercoaters on another forum and a couple of members took alloys to them for refurbishment and have been very happy with the work. If you look at the reviews section on their site there are link to forums where members have used their services.

Put the SL on axle stands, courier the wheels to/from them for refurbishing?

Or use a mobile refurber if you need the car 24/7.

Other option would be to buy a spare set of used wheels from eBay, refurb yours and then move the old wheels on again - shouldn't cost you much extra :)

Does powder coated mean they are finished back to OEM look or is it a different appearance? Want to get my C55 rims done as there is mild bubbling on a couple of spokes.
