“Just had an A3 diamond cut wheel repaired. The wheel now looks better than new and the service from the team at Durham was first class. Would definitely recommend using them to anyone that needs a wheel repaired or refurbishing.”

“Took my old seven-year-old Volvo c30 to Danny and could not believe the finish on the wheels. They were in very poor shape D C said that with my car black the wheels would suit a black chrome finish, how right he was. Do not even consider going anywhere else, not cheap, but well worth it, the job could put double the amount paid in a trade in deal.”

“Thanks for repairing my diamond cut wheel looks better than new, great service and a very quick turnaround.”

“Thank you Danny for another fabulous job as ever, everyone should use you, forget these touch up Cowboys, get the job done professionally by you lads! Top guys… (Michael Bowron)

Seriously though, The Wheel Specialist is the specialist.”

“A Perfect job

Very happy with the look, service & after care advice.

Thanks guys.”

“I took my 4 diamond cut alloys in for repair, as they were suffering from salt damage, and they have come out better than new.

Danny is so helpful, nothing was a problem and very professional.

New tyres were also fitted and all 4 wheels were tracked and balanced and ready to go.

Cannot fault the service and workmanship.

A huge thank you once again.”

“Just wanted to say thanks for the excellent wheel repair to both mine & my Wife's’ cars and the courtesy shown by you and the lads when I have rang or called in.

To be honest I didn’t think the Eos wheel could be repaired so am amazed to say that it looks brand new.

I have already recommended your service to a few people and will continue to do so as it is refreshing to see such excellent service & workmanship-your success is totally deserved.

Many thanks and best regards.”

“I had the wheels on my BMW refurbished yesterday and wanted to recommend these guys to any of you who are thinking of having yours done in the future. The wheels were diamond cut originally but after three years some of the lacquer had started to lift and the alloy was corroding. From my research I established that re-lacquering them would only be a 12-month fix so I have had them powder-coated instead and they look amazing.

I visited several wheel refurbishing companies in Teesside, Sunderland, Newcastle and these guys in Durham as I reckon you can tell a lot from the state of the premises and the way you, as a potential customer, are treated. This place stood out, seemed to have lots of recommendations on various forums and Danny, the franchise owner, seemed to be a genuine and decent bloke.

I collected the wheels yesterday and have to say am delighted with the finished rims, the care that was taken when fitting the tyres and the wheels to the car (they use a two-man scheme where one person torques the nuts and another checks them) and the respect I was shown as a customer. It’s not often you get a handshake and are thanked for your custom from these kind of places.

So, I felt impressed enough to want to pass on the details to you guys.

The details of the company are below and I have attached a couple of photos. Also, as the car is for sale, I have added a document of the copy for the advert which I am going to use when I’ve done some more interior shots of the car. If anyone’s interested in the car or knows anyone else who maybe I’ll happily answer any questions and send more photos. Or, if you want any more information on The Wheel Specialist, let me know.

I’ll see any of you going on the Tees Valley TVRCC Cobweb run on Sunday! I’ve got the mint green T350C (T3 SOX).

“Just to say a massive thank you to all the guys a truly professional service from start to finish.When I purchased my Mazda they had the typical alloy Mazda trait of been in a really bad condition but not any more. It’s like I’ve purchased a new Mazda in showroom condition, I couldn’t have been happier with my new alloys.
I will highly recommend these guys to anyone and their customer service is one of the best I’ve ever seen.”

“I had my wheels done on my old saab 9-3 by the wheel specialist in durham. They have done a fantastic job,my car might be old but what a difference it has made to the look of the car thank you Daniel what a great service. Would recommend to anybody”

“Very slick operation. Had 2 front alloys refurbed back to as-new after a local garage had wrecked them while changing tyres. Spoke to Danny on the phone prior to making the 37 mile journey to Durham, and his attitude was polite, professional and reassuring. When we got there they showed us exactly what they were going to do to get my gloss-black alloys back to their former glory. We are going to return soon to get a colour change done to the alloys of our other car, as Danny quoted us a good price when we enquired. Thanks again – recommended to all.”

“The guys at The Wheel Specialist in Durham have done a cracking job,very happy.”

“Excellent job on my wheels, really pleased with the finish as they were in a very bad state before. Plus the refurbishment fixed the loss of tyre pressure on one of them.

Highly recommended.

“Love my pimped up Juke, wheels look fantastic Thanks guys x”

“Great job sorting the kerbed wheel on my Tiguan today! Cheers!”

“As a former very demanding ‘hands on’ owner of a specialist vehicle restoration & refinishing body shop, I was more than pleasantly surprised by both the service and workmanship Daniel and his team provided. Isn't it inspiring when you come across people who are rightly proud of their business and quality of work? Nowadays, as a Publisher, I’ll be happy to ‘sing their praises’ and show off my ‘better than new’ shiny wheels!”

“Thanks for a really good service and a great price !!! In and out all done in a day Great service , Great finish on the wheels !!!”

“Please thank your staff for the excellent job they did on repairing my alloys to a ‘showroom finish’. I was a little apprehensive of the anticipated cost but after showing me the process and researching your testimonials I was more than happy with the very, very competitive quote you gave me. The wheels on my Shogun were nearly 12yrs old and to say the weather had taken its toll is an understatement; they now look as new and I was able to leave with all my arms and legs intact !!! I would not hesitate to recommend your services and I really appreciate your customer service.
Once again thank you.”

“I would just like to let you know what brilliant service I received at your Durham depot. I had damaged one of my alloys and thought it would cost a fortune to repair. I took it to your depot to get a quote following a call and they even remembered speaking to me a couple of days before. The work was completed quickly and expertly and the service was really friendly and helpful. Top class service all round!”

“Took the plunge and trusted my Jaguar to the Durham unit. The whole experience was a trip back in time to the days when the customer really mattered, explanations of the process, even viewing it being done were easy to understand. No blue suited horror here, just down to earth workers and management, also working. Good humour abounds, compared to many others the cost is reasonable, and believe me I am picky but I could find nothing to pick at, in any way, I even smiled when I paid, it was a pleasure to do so. If you need refurbing, you could do no better than using this unit.”

“Thanks so much to “The Wheel Specialist” at Belmont. What a Brilliant job to my 14yr old Z3 – Definitely RECOMMENDED.”

“Big thank you to Daniel and the lads in the Durham branch. Top notch job from initial phone enquiry to the finished product. The wheels were refurbished to a excellent standard and at a very reasonable price. The customer service was also first class and professional as well of the courtesy car bonus. Don’t delay go today!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

“Just to say a big thank you for the refurbishment you did on my avensis wheels.

The smoked chrome finish is superb I would be more than happy to recommend you and your team to family & friends.”

“Thanks to the guys at Durham Branch.

Top job, great Customer Service.

“Just a quick note to thank you and your team for an outstanding job done on my Rav. Considering the bad condition of the rims, I am completely satisfied not only with the refurbishment, but also with the interest and friendliness afforded by all.
Thank you as well for the loan of your Nissan Juke that came as an utter surprise, and that certainly solved my problem with transport on the day.”

“Cracking job lads, buckled wheels repaired, no more vibration, excellent finish to the wheels. Top class.”

“Just got back from collecting my car. Had a good look round the wheels, fantastic job. Couldn’t be happier, the finish is superb. Exactly what I wanted. They look brand new and I’m really fussy!! So nice to find somewhere with really friendly service that actually delivers the goods these days. I won’t hesitate to recommend the Durham branch to everyone.”

“Just had a shoddy set of second hand alloys completely transformed by these lads. The standards of quality, workmanship and attention to detail are first class, and that’s coming from someone who’s very fussy! I wouldn't go anywhere else in future and will be certainly recommending them to anyone needing this type of service. Top notch, ta very much lads.”

“Many thanks lads love the new colour on the wheels they look fantastic in the flesh .
Great service great price couldn't ask for more even took the time to mask the centre cap badge which look great.”

“Couldn't ask for any more from the lads, perfect job and good banter, spot on what a job, i cannot recommend enough, excellent price and unbelievable finish. even went back this morning and got a couple new tyres fitted, even though its a 20 minute drive away.”

“I had been thinking about having the wheels refurbished on my much loved and cared for Volvo S80 which is almost 10 year old. After asking for a quote, which I thought was reasonable Daniel from Durham contacted me to see if I would be interested in having the work done, he also said I could visit the depot to see the standard of work they would do which I did. The car was booked in for the following day and the work was to the high standard they had promised, I could not recommend them more highly and their customer care was above reproach.”

“Just a quick note to say how delighted I am with my new look wheels. The poor old things were looking very tired and tatty and the transformation is amazing – they now look better than they did when they were new. Trouble is, I’m now going to have to get the rest of the car cleaned up – the wheels are showing it up! A fantastic job – many thanks to you and your team.”

“I visited the workshop today to see the finishes as i want my Vectra SRi wheels refurbed, very polite & a very clean workshop which to me means they take pride in there work! I have booked my car in to have them done, thanks for all the helpful advice & can’t wait to have them done now!”

“I will certainly recommend you to any friends and family in the future as I have already told my Dad to give you a ring to arrange to have my Mams wheels reconditioned at your place.
Best of luck with the business.”

“Just had my wheels refurbed, what a cracking job, over the moon. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I would strongly recommend anybody who is thinking of refurbing their alloys to use these people.”
