    Hey guys - Just want to give a shout out to Steve at APS Alloy Refurbishers, South Wales. He's done a great job on my 166 Speedline Horseshoe wheels, on the outside and the inside!

    Hi Has anyone used these refurb outfits that do your wheels at your home? What did you reckon-did the repair last the test of time? We're talking light parking scuffing-not cracks or flaking. Cheers
