We will need to see the wheels to give an acurate quote so we'll arrange an appointment either at our workshop or your location. Upon acceptance of the quote we will arrange a date for the repairs. You then bring the vehicle to our workshop in Pershore, Worcestershire and we carry out the repairs.
Yes, we do offer collect and return if you are unable to make it to our premises with our trusted driver and fully insurance trade plate service.
You may have noticed the terms OM and OEM used in the automotive industry. OE is the abbreviation of original equipment, as manufactured by approved suppliers direct to vehicle producers. An OE finish requires specific processes, coatings and working instructions. When refurbishing alloys, we aim for a ‘factory standard’ finish, matching the colour as they would have been rolling off the production line.
We cover a 40 mile radius around Pershore Worcestershire.

In most cases, we can match the paint colour to what is currently on the alloys. On occasions, the wheels may have been previously refurbished or have been painted in a bespoke colour that we will aim to match as closely as possible. As there can be slight changes in the shade of wheel colours for a number of reasons, we would always recommend having all four alloys repainted to ensure an exact colour match.
Your tyres could be losing air for a number of reasons, the good news is - we can probably fix it! Corrosion – Solution: Full Refurbishment Corrosion can begin to appear on wheels after a few years. This can cause the paint or lacquer to peel and flake, enabling the elements to rust and corrode the alloys. Puncture – Solution: Puncture Repair or new tyre Some tyre punctures can be repaired depending on where or how severe the damage is to the tyre. Buckled Alloy – Solution: Buckle Repair A buckled/ bent alloy will cause air to be lost through the bead seal. Depending on where or how severe the damage is, we can repair and straighten the wheel to its original shape. Cracked Alloy – Solution: Weld Repair A crack in the wheel can cause air to be lost through the bead seal. As with buckles, this usually occurs after a large impact like a pot hole in the road surface. Once the severity of the crack is inspected, we can repair and weld the damage to strengthen the wheel and prevent air loss.
Regular washing to prevent dirt and brake dust building up. We recommend using a PH neutral wheel wash product. Adding a ceramic coating can also provide additional protection to your alloys.
A full refurbishment for a set of painted alloys takes 2-3 working days. For diamond cut alloys it takes 3-4 working days due to the additional processes involved.
You would be surprised just how much damage can be repaired on an alloy wheel. Using a range of straightening, welding and refurbishment techniques, the majority of damage to an alloy can be repaired in one way or another. On occasions, some wheels are deemed beyond repair and would be unsafe to put back on the road. Send us a picture or pop in and see a technician who can assess the damage to your alloys if you are unsure.
Diamond cut alloys have a polished face after going through our CNC lathe machine.
This provides a two-tone finish. We have lots of examples of our diamond cut finishes in the gallery.
Yes! Once your alloys have been chemically stripped back to bare metal, we can spray your alloys with a colour of your choosing. Either stick with an OM original or go for a custom colour and stand out from the crowd!
With any refurbished alloy there is no guarantee that every blemish can be removed, although in most cases, your wheels will look as good as new! Take a look at our gallery to see some of the amazing transformations we’ve achieved.
As long as you take care of your alloys with regular cleaning and maintenance, your alloys will last for years! Customers who had their alloys refurbished with us over five years ago say their wheels still look as good as new!
Yes! The refurbishment of steel wheels is slightly different to aluminium or magnesium alloys, although we can still bring them back to their best!
During the refurbishment process, rubber values and weights are removed. In most cases, rubber valves are single use and will be replaced with new ones when we refit and balance the wheels. Some cars have tyre pressure sensors TPMS which attach to either metal or rubber valve stems. If the metal valve stems are not corroded, they can be used again.
Certainly! We use a wide range of reputable wholesale companies who supply us with tyres with same or next day delivery. With competitive pricing, many of our customers decide to have new tyres fitted when we refurbish their alloys.
Trade plates allow us to collect and return vehicles that do not have road tax. Trade plates cover the nominated driver to drive the car to and from our premises so that we can carry out the refurbishment. Please note, trade plates do not allow drivers to collect and return cars that do not have a valid MOT certificate.
A satin finish gives a dull, matte look to the wheel rather than a glossy shine. After selecting your wheel colour, you then have the choice of a satin or gloss finish. Speak to one of our technicians who will be able to advise you which will suit your car best.
To achieve the polished face that diamond cut alloys have, an extra process has to take place. Once sprayed, the wheel is placed into our CNC lathe machine that carefully cuts a small amount of profile from the face of the alloy. This additional process requires a specialist machine and skilled members of staff to operate it. This is also the reason for the turnaround on diamond cut wheels being slightly longer.
In most cases, customers drop their car to us and collect it a few days later. Our secure premises is gated with 24/7 CCTV so you can rest easy knowing your car is safe with us. Alternatively, you can drop the wheels loose to us and collect them once the refurbishment is complete. We also offer free collection and return if you’re local and have the option of a courtesy car should you require a vehicle whilst the refurbishment is being carried out.
