    Having owned a virtually pristine CLK for all of 2 weeks, unfortunately I am looking at repairing damage to one of the wheels, incurred while avoiding even bigger damage to a front wing!

    Can anyone recommend a good alloy man in East Kent who can bring it back to its former glory?
    There has also been a nibble taken out of the tyre in the same episode. I am hoping that this will not have affected the structural integrity of the tyre, but would be grateful if someone knowledgeable in such matters would confirm.


    Having lurked on this forum for a while, I am amazed at the expertise out there. I sincerely hope I can soon start to contribute!

    Lepsoms in Gillingham are very good. Give them a call.

    +1 for Lepsons - have seen their work, it's very good, will be taking my 968 there in the not too distant!

    Kind thanks to those who responded. Seems pretty conclusive!

    Colleague had his wheels redone from same place. Finish looks brilliant and they're very helpful.

    Once sunny St Albans, Herts - now delightful Deal,
    Body & Wheels in Westgate split, dipped, painted and re-assembled a set of four BBS 2 piece split rims I had on my old 3 series for a while. I was happy with the results and paid around £70 a wheel for that.

    The other half had her wheels sent to Lepsons for similar treatment to above for her Golf - can't remember the price on them though. She has also just had a scuff on one of her 3 series wheels repaired by a mobile bloke who bases himself with CSG body shop in Deal, Kent.
