I agree it looks deeper than just the powder coating. :?

Hope you get it back as good as new. :)
Just collected it, and pleased to say it does look like new! Thanks to the guys at Wheelworx Colchester.

I thought so. They tell me they start by taking the tyre off, then acid-dip the wheel to remove the old finish, then smooth down any irregularities, then powder-coat it (which involves baking it, I think), then refit the tyre, then balance it. Quite a bit of work for £90.

^^^ Absolute bargain! And I think it’s often only around £100 or so per wheel to get them re-finished in a different colour etc. Could be much cheaper than simply speccing a different wheel colour on the configurator etc!! :P
