    Here in Tasmania it costs $300 per wheel, that's right.... 150 pounds PER WHEEL!

    Sounds like they have done you a favour by messing you around.

    That company doesn't deserve to be in business - after the second slip up I would have been looking elsewhere - you were very patient!:banghead:

    After much research I decided to follow @Paul Rice and get my wheels done at Danum for £190. I looked at Metal Magic in Barnsley and AP tyres in Rotherham, but taking into account reviews and travel costs, I think Danum is the right choice. I pick them up on Monday!

    OK style 78 wheels now bought and refurbished, new tyres all round and brand new oem centre caps.

    Have to say Danum Powder Coating in Doncaster have done an amazing job. Best refurb I have seen and really nice guys to deal with. Thanks @Paul Rice for that recommendation.

    For any else in Doncaster, Harworth Tyres is a newish business run by a great guy called Patrick. He supplied and fitted the tyres. I can highly recommend him to anyone in the area.

    Pictures attached. I am chuffed.

    For anyone in the south of the region, I can heartily recommend Alloy Art in Rochford. Very helpful, very professional and very good quality. They check every rim for damage, cracks and buckles. 20180430_213844.jpg

    Robert Wiles,

    A bit off topic, but how did you paint your calipers?

    Did mine in situ 6 years ago. Cleaned off with calliper cleaning spray, then wire brush and white spirit wipe. Hand painted using Halfords Caliper paint - bit fiddly doing the backs. Still look Ok with wheels on but need to do them again.

    Plenty of brushing with small wire brushes, then a couple of cans of brake cleaner. Another brush with a stiff paint brush and then two coats of smooth Hammerite silver. Been done a year now and they seem to be lasting pretty well.

    They look great, but given the fabulous shade you've painted the car, I reckon you're right regarding the colour. What colour will you do them?
