    I'm thinking of getting my wheels a complete refurb @ TheWheelSpecialist - North London this month, just sorting out a new set of wheel caps etc

    I was wondering if anyone had used them? Opinions etc?

    The 12 month warranty doesn't seem that impressive to me given the cost.

    No one else gives a longer warranty on wheel refurbs 12 month is standard some are even less.

    Can recommend The Wheel Medics

    The "other side" held a GTG at the Swindon branch earlier this year - got to say I was quite impressed with their process.

    I used The Wheel Specialist in Edmonton North London and would recommend them, friendly staff, good quality workmanship, fast turnaround and competitive on price, they were cheaper than Costco on a set of Michelins too:thumb:

    Rimfurbish, linky - Rimfurbish

    Team Dynamics / Rimfurbish / Rimstock make alloys and offer a refurbishment service.
    Very big, big enough to offer an exchange service, and helpful too.

    £384 but the general concensous is that discounts can be had and I'm not necessarily in any hurry but would like them done.

    I would Howard but I need sameday service and I don't think BJV will be up to it.

    No , they aren't .

    I would question the sort of job you will get with a same day turnaround though ?

    Maybe that's why they are twice as expensive as anyone else ?
