Thats a decent price when you think about it.
A single new alloy wheel would cost about 75pound by itself, probably more depending on the make.
If they refurbish and respray the whole wheel, then its going to be as good as new for half the price.

Check out our sponsors forum as there are are a couple that do Refurbs. Click Me

At the end of the day you will always pay a little more for quality.

And also depending upon the size of the repair
can up the price too.

Think about how long it takes 2 do them ,1/ Remove all the tyre's 2/ shot blast them 3/ Repaint 4/ Refit all the tyres & balance . If you want a custom look you've got 2 pay .

Either take the wheels to a local tyre house and ask them to "Pop" the front bead for you then its very easy to mask the tyre off or cover it with grease and the over spray wont stick to the tyre. Be sure to clean all the grease off afterwards or you will have slippy tyres smack

On your alloys Scoop you need to scuff the mirror finish off or the paint will NOT Stick, spray paint needs a rough serface to "Key" into. Its like trying to grab onto a shiney serface, you slip off easily, but if its a rough serface you can grip onto it easily, just the same as paint.
