    Worth it for sure.
    damaged rims look scabby, and new rims lift the appearance of a car greatly.

    You car now looks the parts. I'll leave it at that.

    Yup - that works. They look soooooooooooo much better in the dark grey. Although I would have probably gone for the black, ala 225 F1

    They look great. How much were they to get done?

    One other thing, why the new thread?

    Hey Rikky
    The alloys look great. How much for the refurb?
    One of mine was scuffed before I purchased and was fixed before i picked it up, and is looking brand new.
    My Meggy has the grey powder coat alloys as well.
    Looks like Rex Gorrel is a nice big dealership too

    Hey DeJa and 68,

    The wheels were done by a local guy here. He comes and does them on site. He used to run the same business in the UK. He charges between $110 and $150 a wheel. More than happy with the work. The dealership also uses his services for minor paint as well as wheel repairs.
    Our delaership here....yep it is big. About 14 franchises over 3 sites all here in Geelong.
