The Wheel Specialist Support WellChild

As some of our followers may know The Wheel Specialist, a specialist alloy wheel refurbishment franchise, has recently teamed up with a number of other franchises to raise some money for WellChild. WellChild is the national charity for sick children who are working to ensure that seriously ill children and young people have the best possible quality of life through their innovative programmes of Care, Support and Research. Their network of WellChild Children’s Nurses, medical researchers and  Helping Hands teams are all dedicated to providing crucial support for children and young people – regardless of their condition – many of whom require long-term and complex care.  For more than 30 years they have been caring for, supporting and investing in the UK ’s seriously ill children and young people, and their families, and during that time there have been incredible medical breakthroughs. However, there are currently more children than ever before needing our support with estimates showing that well over 100,000 children in the UK have complex medical care needs.

WellChild is a fantastic charity and one that we were very proud to support – our charity football match against M1 Soap Life was a great success and all in all managed to raise a whooping £4,600 for the charity. For more information on the charity and to find out how you can help please visit:

Wheels even more stunning than the car…

The Wheel Specialist has recently been working alongside Porsche ensuring their wheels are looking just as stunning as the car. What is the point in having a stunning car if the wheels look a mess?

These Porsche wheels unfortunately had a scrape with the kerb – being a diamond cut rim the damaged ruined the look of the whole car. It was down to The Wheel Specialist to re-diamond cut the rims and spokes finishing off the center in a deep gloss black. The finish, we hope you agree, is simply stunning. The diamond cut finish gives a stunning high shine and the two tone effect works wonders.

The Wheel Specialist is proud to offer a full diamond cut alloy wheel refurbishment service to breathe new life in to those damaged diamond cut wheels. The bespoke process that we use enables us to achieve a simply flawless finish with a very fast turnaround time, limiting the down time of your vehicle.

The Wheel Specialist Cardiff Attends Rally Car Show In Aid of Leukaemia.

The Gwent Branch of Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research was founded in November 1979. A few months later a friend of one of the members suggested holding a Vintage Car Rally to raise funds.

The first Rally was held in October 1980 and, despite the torrential rain on the day and the fact that they did not have much of an idea what a car rally was all about, 68 exhibits showed and raised £635. The following year, armed with a little more knowledge and help from a few of the exhibitors, they were able to raise £2,100. It still rained but there were dry spells in between the showers. They watched the profit increase each year and we were delighted, in 1986, to reach the magic figure of £10,000.

Over the years since then they have suffered from many trials and tribulations. There have been postal strikes, the wettest weekend in Wales since records began and the fuel crisis to name but a few. However the Rally has gone from strength, and now anticipates in the region of 1,500 exhibits and over 10,000 visitors.

They are expecting over 1,500 exhibits, with cars ranging from Ford model Ts from the early 1900′s to American Cadillacs from the 1980′s and sports cars such as Stags, Morgans, Jaguar, MGs and many others. There will also be many vintage and classic motor cycles, commercial vehicles, tractors, stationary engines and military vehicles.

Added attractions will be a craft marquee, children’s amusements, autojumble, trade stands, and many other stalls. You will be able to buy refreshments from a number of outlets and a bar will also be open. The Wheel Specialist Cardiff / Newport are pleased to attend the event and sponsor this great cause. This is a great opportunity to meet the guys and chat to them about your wheels.
