ok so i spoke to guy who is supposed to be refurbing my alloy and charging kwik fit for it....

i said to him i was planning on getting all 4 refurb'd anyway and painted black so he said to me i may aswell wait till im ready to do all 4 and he would just charge me for the 3. As just refurbing 1 would be a waste of time if i was planning on painting them anyway.

he sent me a quote today of £310 for 3 wheels! does anyone else think this is extreme!?!?

well theres a place near me called trestans that charge 30 per wheel so thats 120 for all 4 dont know what they charge for taking tyres off but i can imagine its still a hell of a lot cheaper than 100 per wheel seems a joke!

thing is this leaves me in a predicament (excuse my spelling) as quickfit use these peolpe to refurb wheels, and they owe me a refurb on 1 wheel, and they are not going to let me choose who i use, so do i just get all for done at a place of my choice and let quickfit off the hook or do i get 1 of 4 wheels refurbed twice and painted once? lol sorry if this sounds confusing.

If its bothering you just get the one wheel sorted. Then shop around and get a good refurb price when your ready. If its a free refurb it's not doing harming your pocket and will work out cheaper to get the full set done anyways so you not losing out

In my opinion, you ask them for the money that they are willing to pay to get it done for you on the grounds that it will look newer than all of the others then, and that seeing as that is the case you will get them all done but at a place that you trust.

Or you do as suggested and get the one done for now, but i was quoted £40 a wheel for an 18" and above in Edinburgh and there is no way i would be paying £310 for 3 wheels

Alternate option if Kwik Fit won't budge, take another members alloy that needs refurbing to the guy, charge £35 ish to the member and put that towards having all four done somewhere else.

You shouldn't be paying anymore than £60 a wheel max unless they are really bad. But 40 notes a wheel on a ford should do you.

Most i know of someone paying is £250 for 1 wheel...... mind it was a 5k set of alloys on a lambo.

By the sounds of it if Kwik fit are getting a company they use "all the time" ...they probably said for them to go in high so they dont have to pay for a wheel re-furb themselves.....a place near me charges £50 a wheel re-furb and color......on 18"....get the danmaged wheel repaired then get all four colour changed yourself....least you know you got summit out of them
