Wheel Furb FAQ 2018-04-18T22:38:07+00:00

Wheel Furb offer a TOTAL wheel refurbishment service that mobile alloy wheel repair services cannot offer for a similar price to what they will charge for a temporary, cosmetic, touch up job. The finishes at Wheel Furb give an all over coating and are tougher and longer lasting and will last you for years to come. Mobile services cannot prepare the wheel as thoroughly or strip off old coatings prior to refurbishment so it is impossible for a mobile company to achieve the same finish as Wheel Furb.  In most cases they don’t even remove the tyre, they just mask it off.

In certain circumstances a smart repair is the only option. For example when there is only 1 alloy wheel that is kerbed and requires an OEM finish or colour matching. We can provide this service at a cost of £45 for a same day service.

Its simple. All work is performed on site with no outsourcing.

Many of our competitors will try to discredit us by saying we are cheap because we cut corners. We can assure you we do not. Have a look at our process. All pictures and videos are taken on our premises. More importantly have a look at our feedback and decide yourself.

If you were to closely compare a wheel that we have refurbished to a brand new wheel, you may be able to see a difference, but otherwise to all intents and purposes your wheels will look as good as new.

The quality of the finish however does depend on the condition of the wheels (see our Terms & Conditions), though we do guarantee to improve your wheels and of course the finish is guaranteed for 12 months.

Yes, we supply new valves with all refurbished alloy wheels fitted to tyres. We can also supply chromed valves / flush valves if required, please ask for details.

Yes, if you let us know in advance the tyre size, speed rating, and preferred make (if applicable). We don’t stock all tyres, but we can source most makes at very competitive prices usually within 48 hours, and often the same day.

Almost certainly, although there are so many manufacturers that there are bound to be some makes that we haven’t yet refurbished. If your wheels are unusual in any way, send us a photograph and details (make, diameter, composition – alloy, steel and finish required) and we’ll let you know.

Yes however there is a charge. Prices start from £30 per set.

Yes, prices vary but we can quote you instantly on all cracked and damaged wheels.

Yes. But only for the same day service. We also have to charge £15 to cover insurance costs for the day.

We do not recommend using car washes and any specialist wheel cleaners. Most of them are nothing more than a mild acid which will attack the surface of your wheels. We recommend to use mild soapy warm water and a non abrasive cloth/brush.
