After five years of use and abuse I finally got round to getting my alloy wheels sorted. The front left wheel was appalling and flakes of paint were coming off daily. All wheels had spidering and let the car down.
I booked the car into my local wheel specialist and I am pleased with the results.

Looks great, love the dual colour job.

You might want to get a set of black laurel caps - they will match perfectly your new wheels.

Yeah, I come over regularly as my parents live there. I was brought up in Shanklin.

I got the wheels done at The Wheel Specialist, Bristol. They were really helpful and I was pleased with the price. I had all new Conti Sport Contact 6 tyres fitted whilst there for a brilliant price.

The centre caps are the originals but I have ordered new ones that will be delivered tomorrow.

They look diamond cut? If so I'd recommend some sort of coating, ceramic if possible, to protect them. The reason I suggest this is none OEM diamond cutting is only guaranteed for 12 months and one tiny chip can cause them to deteriorate much quicker than OEM.

When I bought my car 14 months ago one wheel was refurbished, by the dealer, and it's beginning to show deterioration. All the others are still ok.

I bought a ceramic coating product from TWS and spent hours applying it. I’m glad I did as they look even better than in the pics and give good protection.
