wheel refurb

Post by wildstar » Sep 3rd, '17, 06:45

Hi Guys
Due to two times cock up with the wheels on the wife's new Discovery by the Maid Dealer they have said to sort it down here in Cornwall and they will repay me the cost.
Thinking of colour change to a gunmetal chrome effect the same time.
So visited a few companies that dip and spray the wheels but there is a company that powder coats the wheels .
Any of you got any recommendations and prefered finish ie powder or spray painted.
Although in Mid Cornwall i don't mind traveling for a proper job

South west wheel repair in Exeter will do nearly anything.
Have a real nice shadow chrome also.

First choice are excellent, but as far as I'm aware only do powder coating? Personally I'd suggest painting wheels (especially car wheels which could be subject to kerbing). Plus you can get a better range of colours and finishes. Modern paints are just as (if not more) durable than powder coat too.
Of all the things I have ever lost, I miss my mind the most .....
