    Tyres of for refurb?

    How many people took there tyres of when they painted/refurbed their wheels? Just want to do mine black but don't want to really add to the expense by getting all the tyres taken off. I know i'll get a better finish if I took the tyres off but I dont really want to

    It'll look shit if you don't IMO. If you're gonna do it, do it properly, or wait till your tyres need replacing.

    To do a proper refurb you will have the tyres taken off.
    Most companies won't even entertain the idea of doing a refurb with tyres on.
    But all refurb places can do this for you for a small expense.

    deffo take the tyres off first, that way the paint will get wrapped around the edge of the wheels nicely, providing a much longer lasting finish.

    How much is it roughly to have 4 tyres taken off and put back on? Just got a new set of spec 2s, should have done it then really

    Its going to vary from garage to garage and area to area but when I asked it was £5 per tyre to be remove and put back on.
