    Changing colour of wheels

    Is it possible to change the colour of my alloy wheels from silver to black for example?

    Without buying a new set that is.

    Yep, most places that do refurbs should be able to do colour changes, some bodyshops may also do it.

    Or if you feel confident you could do it yourself, wouldn't be the 1st person on this site to do it, so people will have advice available.

    There's a REALLY good refurber in Scunthorpe, that's not to far away from you. Charges approx £45 a wheel but he can do virtually any colour you want.

    As they've said any refurb place will do it for you. I've recently had mine done.

    Don't do it!!!!!!

    Looks like you can't be bothered to cleam them. That's my opinion anyway
    Gaz

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    I saw some penta's in black and looked impressive, Mind you the silver compliments the blue of my car i suppose.
