Our Van is just over 7 years old and the wheels are suffering from a fair bit of pitting / corrosion. I understand it is quite a common issue. Just wondered if it was worth stumping up for a refurbishment. Has anyone had this done ?

I am planning on getting our fiat factory alloys powder coated. Seen a few on the road and think they look better than the factory finish.

Nothing connected to me but these seem a good buy…😎

They do seem decent value. I probably should have given a bit more consideration to the bigger picture before getting new tyres all round in December 🤨

Diamond cut alloys look great when they are new but can easily get the 'worms' under the lacquer within 2 or 3 winters if used where the roads are salted many months of the year.

Alloy Wheel refurb companies are very common now, you should be paying around £50-£70 per wheel for a straight powder coated finish, more if you want diamond cut (which I'd advise against for the reasons Drexl says). It brings them up nicely. If yours are very heavily pitted that can show through a new finish a bit, but usually they come up good as new.

Don't bother with mobile operators who advertise that they come to you and work out of a van, they just paint them and the prep isn't always great. They can be OK for little scuff repairs but not much more. You want them blasting, powder coating and baking, which means a factory unit.
