    I can get you the name of a guy in bradford if you want. He restored some appauling wheels which were scuffed worst than ive ever seen before and it only cost £20 per wheel.

    I was about to use Wicked Wheels due to the positive things that I had read about them on a dedicated motoring forum - but I sold the car instead.

    Just talked to a friend and he cant remember the name of the firm but its on victoria road in eccleshill. They really were worthy of the scrappers before they repaired them and then they looked brand new.

    Thanks for your suggestion Bilbob but like ive said earlier it's only 5 weeks old, and my missus compares me to frank spencer whenever I do DIY on the house, so chances of getting that kit and making a right bugger of it are pretty high.

    Anyway got chipsaway coming on monday £47 :)

    If anyone wants the number just let me know

    Depends where you are in Hampshire. Im taking my Audi to Bodyworks in Camberley next week before I sell it (Audi S4 cabriolet if anyone interested ;) ). They are charging £45 a wheel and need the car for a couple of days. Recommended by the local dealer as the guy they use themselves.

    Hi, I have used the guys at www.notjustwheels.co.uk a few time already to repair many sets of alloy wheels. I normally refurbish alloy wheels myself but as I normally restore classic minis and I hate having to work my large fingers round the small spokes when it comes to rubbing down so I use the Not Just Wheels guys.

    I used to be based in North Wales and that is when I started using them, the fact they were in Nottingham wasn't a problem as they use pallet transport companies to transport thier work at thier expense, although they aren't the cheapest wheel repairers around, I have never come across anyone better and for that reason I am very happy when it comes to value for money.

    I know they are in the process of moving thier sites at the time of this post but they should be back up and running in no time, or at least I hope as I need some wheels repairing.

    Hope this helps guys!

    just had 4 Audi alloys done by Fenwick Alloys from Preston. Very professional job. Wheels now look as good as when I bought the car new:thumbsup:. Looks like his web site is currently closed at the moment. Can contact him on 07918 195243. He works on his own and does jobs for the main dealerships in North West.
