Alloy wheel refurb for £20 @ Citypowdercoating

Found 15th Apr 2014
This has been on for a while but decided to give them a go last week and got my wheels back today. For the price you really can't go wrong, they were heavily curbed before.

How do you manage without your wheels do they give you some spares?

How much is postage from London

I had bought the ones off eBay that I had refurbed so drive around on the originals but I suppose you could maybe do one at a time and use the spare?

Bit long-winded but will get tjem all done eventually

is that for 4wheels?
link broken on mobile.

They were curbed? Did you send them from America?

£20 per wheel...

The Americans don't curb their wheels, they just park 6 feet away from the kerb.

Others just use their tanks... kerb what? What kerb?

Well it's £20 a wheel without tyres or 30 with but I bought the wheels without tyres

Nice deal is that your wheel in the pic?

My local powdercoat place wants £50 + vat for an 18" wheel, £20 is a very good price. I have heard the powdercoating at city powder coating might be a bit on the thin side, but for £20 it's still very good value.

It's a KERB, you had kerbed wheels

Can't get link to work

that is a horrendous website

Very good company and some great finishes

Think the site only works on a desktop

had mine there as well - not a bad finish for 20 quid and if you want, they will also put new tyres on once refurbed instead of putting your old ones on - I supplied my own new tyres from camskill and dropped the lot off. only thing was I should have asked for small valves instead of the standard as they stuck out quite a lot....

Oh, that's what you were going on about. Thanks for explaining. I did understand what he meant anyway though.

I'm a web designer. i can build them a new user friendly site for a reasonable price. Get them in contact with me please >_

Don't Amazon do new alloy wheels for around the same price?

Not bad, they're pretty local and my wheels are kerbed severely (previous owner). Does anybody know how long I'd be without my car? EDIT - found it in FAQ, takes 2 - 4 days for a set.

Where are they based? Site won't open on my iPad

Think I made a better website doing my GCSE's in 1999

I'd recommend black wheels if you have a white car guys and gals, looks awesome but there a nightmare to keep clean. Luckily my mate did mine 4 for £100, if this place is any good its a bargain at £20 per wheel

For those asking where it is, it's fazeley street, digbeth there was a man bringing a van full of alloys so they must be doing something right!

They are situated at the **** end of Digbeth. I had a swinging arm done for my bike and they did a mint job. The only advise I would give is .... They literally powder coat everything and I mean everything !!

A man with a van full of alloys sounds like a professional car thief...

Does anyone know anywhere good in the north west/Lancashire area that does this for a good price and quality? Cheers

Shame your so far away I'd of hooked you up with my mate who did mine above. Took him a day to do them. He's in the North East, if anybody else is up this way drop me a PM.

Do a bit of digging before taking the plunge, city powder coating get a very 'marmite' result with as many bad experiences as good. I vaguely remember a set of Audi alloys that ended up not being roadworthy, and other cases where the powder coat didn't survive the tyre refit.

The price is cheap, but several places aren't far behind in terms of price, and far ahead in terms of quality. I had one wheel repaired and coated for £30 at a local place, and it's still in perfect condition.

my peugeot got alloys i will try - definitely good price

any bargain alloy refurbers in south wales?

Oh boy, it's the 90's all over again.. I'm disappointed by the lack of clock and some fancy cursor trail.

That big middle button damn near took out my ear drums. Had bass on full on the surround sound system. The rest of the buttons are nice and quiet compared to that.
