wheel refurbishment

As well as needing new rubber, the teledials on the V6 are not pretty.

Is there anyone reputable in Norfolk/Suffolk who can bring them back to presentable?

If you are thinking about having the wheels paint finished then I would suggest giving SW Alloys in Norwich a call, Alloy wheel refurbishment, respraying, welding and straightening Norwich.

If you prefer powered coating then I know a few people who have used Aerocoat, home

Hope that helps.

After being forced up a kerb thanks to a deranged bus driver, I mangled the OEM wheels on my Spider.

Took them to my local Treadfirst (here in Diss) where they repaired the damage and powder coated them black. Total cost 80 per wheel. I think it's an improvement - mainly cos they hide the brake dust!

And note that - so far - I have resisted the urge for coloured caliper covers! :-)
