Default SW LDN - Alloy wheel refurb

So the time has come for me to finally sort my wheels out. Just wondered if anyone had any recommendations before I pull the trigger via a google search and cross my fingers!

Wheel Works in Crawley did my Final Edition D2 wheels.
Not able to do Diamond cutting though.
Hope this helps

I had mine done recently by a company called Posh Wash.

You can drop them off at London Park Lane or Brentford. Mine were turned around in a day

I regularly browse for wheels on ebay and noticed this refurb'd wheel which I though was well done, as are their other wheels for sale. They're in West Hampstead. I have no first hand experience but could be worth an email to them.

Thanks all for some great leads. I need to figure out the logistics because I donít have a second set to use, so therefore unable to drop mine off!! Not sure about leaving the entire car?

Hadnít thought of that! LOL

Posh Wash was actually the guys that Oli18 used as well and I think he did leave his car there - I thought the depot he used was somewhere like Shepherds Bush

I can recommend South West Wheel Repairs in Exeter.

They did a set of D3 fat fives for me a couple of years ago and did a superb job. They're not cheap, but they do proper paint rather than rubbish powder coat. They don't do diamond cutting though.

You can leave the car with them too - they often have a workshop full of high-end German stuff on axle stands. Not sure how long it takes like that though.

I had mine done at Lepsons in Gillingham. You can leave the car with them, or remove the wheels yourself and they will collect and deliver.
