Well before I tell you who fixed it for me only £69 have a look at the before and after pictures!!

BEFORE:


AFTER:


.. to be honest I can't even find where they've repaired the wheel!!

Here are the guys; FELTHAM TYRE CENTRES at.. http://www.felthamtyre.co.uk/index.html

The alloy is (apparently) one of the most difficult to repair as its called a diamond cut. In production they paint the wheel diamond cut slices out of the surface to reveal the alloy below.

It took two weeks to do as they have to send it away to a specialist - typically its a one week process but there was a delay.

**RECOMMENDED**

Really pleased with the job.. can't see where they've fixed it, and doesn't seem to be any reduction in the depth of the rims..

Mart well found company and local to me, the wheel looks fantastic, top workmanship for a good price, now you will need a bus for when you park up just so you and your passengers can get to the kerb.

My old MINI ONE went to Feltham Tyres to have a new exhaust. Good service but the exhaust wasnt exactly like the proper MINI ones it looked a bit different and only had it on a year and it was badly corodeing after only 6k miles very odd.

Your wheels look like new!

No that was Tadworth Tyres. They are an old school tyres and nothing else sort of place!

That's an amazing repair job. Looks like a new wheel. Good price too.

Looks like a great repair.... I need to get mine done, as I really scuffed them when I first got my car... I was use to my cooper and when I got the cooper S with low profiles I kept hitting the kerb!!! Even worse I had to replace 3 tyres!!! Makes me sound like a right idiot, (or just a bad driver), but i'm not..... but I have to get two wheels done!
