Hi guys,

Looking for some advise here as I’m a bit out of touch on this subject and Its something I’ve never had to have done before.

I have a set of 17” Momo Revenge alloys in satin black on my MK7 ST. I’ve had them now for the last 7 years and they are now starting to show signs of wear and corrosion etc which has urged me into looking into getting them fully refurbished and restored to their former glory.

I popped along to the ‘Wheel Specialists’ local to me in Fareham, Hampshire yesterday afternoon. They’ve quoted me £370 for all four wheels to be fully stripped down, repaired where needed and then powder-coated in a anthracite colour change which I’ve decided to go for.

Does this sound like a reasonable price for this work to be done as I was thinking more like £50/£60 per wheel? I might be way-off in my thinking though with the cost of everything having gone up! 😫

Failing that, can anyone on here recommend another place that could do the job in the Hampshire area that I could potentially pay a visit to?

Cheers peeps 👍🏻

About the price I paid at a wheel specialist chain some years back for the same alloys.
I think there are some places that will do it for around 320 ish but that sounds about right.

Just to add, sounds right. I had mine done on my Mk6 a fair few years back for a similar price and one on my Mk7. If anything, inflation hasn't seemed to impact this cost much at all.

Thanks Alec, this seems to be a fair price for what they’re offering to do, so I’ll take the plunge and get them done through these guys.

Cheers

Dont go cheap as lots of places that offer cheaper refurbs just clean back the wheels rather than do a proper strip and prep and then wet paint them rather than powder coat. They look great for the first few months then start to go dull and get scratched up really easily.

There's a place in Birmingham that does full strip, sand blast, powder coat and refit for about £160. The place is called City Wheel Refurbishment, they have a giant production line doing it so they can drive the cost down. Would recommend it if you/anyone else is in the Midlands. They also offer a quick (same day24hr maybe) turnaround for a cost and will even take the wheels off the car for you so you could drive in and leave your motor there.
