    Default Alloy wheel refurbishment - Midlands

    A couple of my wheels have got light kerbing. Anyone know of a recommended company in the West Midlands or even one that works from your home. I don't think a full strip and repaint is required but I'm open to advice as always.

    Thanks.

    I've used Roger at The Wheel Restorer - www.thewheelrestorer.co.uk/home.html - and can recommend him. I had to take my wheel off and he arranged for a courier but he might be within driving distance for you.

    If you've got Magnesium wheels then you need to find someone with experiance in repairing that metal.

    I can second The wheel restorer, as he does all of our work - for a complete refurbishment he is excellent - however Shiltech have a really good guy whom can do a smart repair on your wheel for a fraction of the cost.
