Scratched Alloys :-(

Recommended Posts

What's the best and most cost effective way to remove curb scratches from alloy wheels. I'm not very techy so layman's terms please!!

Thanks

Sarah

That's the cheapest quote that I know of.

If you know anybody who works in a bodyshop, they could probably do it cheaper than that.

Hi sazaboo.

I see you're in Yorkshire. I know you're probably not gonna get your wheels refurbed because of a couple of scratches on one wheel, but for future reference you could keep these guys in mind. Cas Coatings. They're in Bradford so probably not too far from you I guess. They don't have a price on their website any more, but they used to be about £35 per wheel, starting price.

As for the wheels as they stand, I'd just live with that damage and wait til you're in need of a proper refurb. If you do anything to one wheel, chances are that it won't look right next to the others, so not much point in just doing one.

Edit: Just seen they've removed the pricing page and just listed it on the main page. Wheel prices start at £1 per inch for flat colours (15" wheels are £15) and laquer coating is 50% extra, all plus vat. So 15" wheels with colour and laquer are £22.50 plus vat = £27.00.
