Alloy wheels repair

Hey guys

My Mito QV had an argument with one of the many potholes couple of weeks ago and both nearside wheels ended up heavily kerbed. Unfortunately I have the diamond cut 18in sport alloys which I now know are a nightmare to get repaired. Found powdertec in glasgow were one of the few places who could repair the wheels albeit they took a week to get repaired but i can't fault the finish. Wheels back and the Mito looking brand new again. Thought i would spread the word especially with the wonderful condition of the roads!

It was £270 for the two however that was getting the wheels completely re-diamond cut. If its normal alooy wheels it will be much less and i think they can even do a same day service for non diamond cut wheels. I didn't mind the cost as mine were getting repaired courtesy of the council

Well lets just say I was able to find out about an accident that had happened the week before and apparently the same pothole was a contributary factor! A little hint in the councils ear that i knew this changed their mind very quickly

Nice job too! After seeing them yesterday at Hopetoun, I think I will stick my wheels in over the winter.
