I have had great service from Letchworth diamond alloys, and cheaper than that lot in Woburn sands that shut as I was driving there!
Said they would wait.

How much do you want to spend, what kind of finish do you want and on what car?

For me I'd go to City Powdercoaters in Brum. For £180 you can drive your car in, pick your colour from their limited selection and then get it done quickly ; a one day turnaround.

Otherwise The Wheel Specialist branches seem fine ; That's what the previous person used for my M3

Many thanks for all of your replies. I have had the wheels done now, my car was in DW Performance in Wellingborough for a little bit of tlc and Kev Waterhouse has got one of his contacts to do them for me. They were so bad they had to be diamond cut back and repainted.
