Alloy Wheel Refurb - East London / Essex

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know a decent place who diamond polishes and refurbs original 17" IS alloys from past experience?

Cheers

Lepsons is famous for quality wheel refurbishments. They are based in Kent. You can ring them and ask them if they have a trade agent in Essex. There is a good chance they will.

the original is300 wheels are machine polished (face and edge) with metallic silver spayed internals.

there is a choice for refurb - paint the whole wheel or carry out the above.

remarkably, price works out the same.

i have sourced a reputable alloy refurb outfit.

which choice do you recommend? comments?

Polished and lacquered face and painted internals would be my choice.

Diamond cut face with painted internals and fully lacquered would be even better.

Here's an option I posted in a topic earlier. Essex based.

Ages ago someone here (can't remember who) recommended a firm on Canvey Island, Essex.

Made a note of it at the time for when I want some wheels doing. JP Polishing

Never used them myself, but they've been there doing it for years (previous to it being called KO, there was another company doing wheel refurbs in the same place, so I guess they were sold/taken over and renamed). On the A10, 2 mins from J25 M25 (Cheshunt EN8)

Also, I was in a Jeep/Chrysler dealership a couple days ago in Chelmsford CM2 (http://www.motorpark...rysler and Jeep) picking up a part, and noticed a sign for wheel refurb. £54 per wheel, plus VAT, with offer on of 4 wheels for the price of three. so 4 wheels should cost £194 inc

Guys, sorry to butt in but can you recommend some decent locking wheel nuts for stock 17" 5-spokes for a 2002 IS300?

Mine are rusted like anything and some of the metal caps have fallen off.

Cheers!

...and here are my wheels, or wheel. Diamond polished with sprayed internals in silver fleck metallic. I left my centre caps anonymous, no logo!

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
