Can anyone recommend a Tyre Off / Acid Bath / Oven Bake / Full Monty Wheel Refurb Specialist in Surrey / Berks / Bucks area? Looking to get all four done in the original Porsche Silver.. Colour match required?

I was planning on getting all four done at Lepsons in Gillingham, but the logistical paradigm of Work, Train & No Time Off is working against me.. I'm based in Epsom for Work..

Any advice and/or help greatly appreciated! :D

Thanks for the reply.. The problem is that I need to drop car at Refurbishers and then catch Train to Epsom.. Not really doable to/from Flaunden..

I may have found a place near Petersfield.. Will share my findings if I go ahead with them 8)

Lepsons Gillingham Kent. Multiple options, they have a station 2 minutes walk away with direct connections to London, they do free storage whilst they refurb your wheels. Or they'll collect from you by courier & return.
http://www.lepsons.com/

Club members get a dsicount, I think 10% plus free courier

Lepsons did a fantastic job on my wheels and Jim is right they do give a discount for TIPEC members.
The colour match was spot on. It's worth talking to them and using their free storage, and then jumping on the train, you will not be disappointed.
Good luck

I haven't but I know a few who have, he uses Lepsons for the wheel refurbs & just acts as courier, QC & lends you some wheels.

These guys are in Crawley and offer a discount to TIPEC members.
Had a day over there and saw everything they can do.
Very good and reasonable price.

My local tyre fitter speaks highly of Pristine Wheels near Leicester.

Judging by the state of my wheels (and there being no corrosion present on the inside of my wheel 7 years after they were refurbished (there was a sticker inside the wheel saying this upon the tyres being removed) I would not hesitate in recommending them :).

Will post up some pics of the wheels when they return.. ps. Anyone know where I can buy matte black centre caps with porka crest ? Can only find gloss!
