Anyone had it done? I tried a search but could find nothing. Theres not too much wrong with mine but a few bits of corrosion on them. I know someone that refubs alloys but I wouldnt trust him with my Willies ones as they have a polished rim.
Carlos, Where abouts are you? I had mine done at a place in Worcester they did a brilliant job and mine were is a really bad way when I brought the car, took the chap three hours for each wheel just to polish the rim! Cost me £180 for the four.
It was the only place I could find that would do a polished rim most places who only do them all gold.
If you want me to find his number out drop me an email. mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com.
Cheers guys. Im not ready to get it done yet but I can get a carrier through my work to deliver and collect them so distance shouldnt be a problem. I have to wait until my other transport is going again (if ever). I just worry that the colour might not be correct as Marks says. Ill contact renault first but I will make sure im sitting down
Im in the process of having mine done at the moment. Mine had been done in the past and the colour was not a perfect match so I decieded to get them done. I swapped the spare wheel for the alloy and wet and dried a patch of the top coat paint to get to the original paint which I t cutted and polished so I bloke could do a colour match.
When I got the wheel back I noticed it wasnt the right shade of gold(gutted)-just a bit to gold like one of delboys gold braclets. appart from the colour it was a fine job with the polished rim and all sand blasted and painted on the inside of the wheel(£25).
Ive taken off one of the other alloys now and im going to take it down to a paint shop to see if they can match it up exactly.
Ill probably have four different shades of gold on my clio by the end of the month!
I found a place in Essex, Rochester tyres and wheels 01702 545689. Seen their work and thats where im gonna take mine to be done. They will give you a loan set of wheels whilst they do yours for you. So you drive there and they remove your wheels and slap on a loan set, then once yours are done they swap em back !! How good is that !! Only down side is they take about a week, but with a loan set who cares.
Cost i think is about £35.00 a wheel !! Well it was last year.
