About Us

The Wheel Specialist knows the importance of taking care of your alloy wheels and having them refurbished by the best people in the business is one way to do this. We offer alloy wheel repair and refurbishment, powder coating, wheel re-spray, diamond cut wheels and much more to suit your personal style and your vehicle.

We have been an established company since 1955 and for the last 25 years we have been offering our excellent alloy wheel refurbishment service. We have a number of depots across the United Kingdom as our company has expanded massively over the last 60 years. We have depots in the North, the South, the Midlands, in Scotland and Wales. Wherever you are, we have somewhere convenient for you and we are hoping to branch out and open new branches including one in Kingston, Chessington. If this is your new, local store please email us at for more information.

In this branch and many of our others we offer wheel-finishing services. This includes a colour change and customisation, cosmetic repairs, diamond cutting, existing match and OEM. Customising your wheels gives a unique appearance to your vehicle and makes you stand out from the crowd.

We offer a powder coating process, which is used to change the colour. We strip and re-fit the tyres and then rebalance your wheels. The previous layers of lacquer and paint are removed to get back to the smooth original metal surface, sometimes a chemical stripping is required first if the wheels are in poor condition. This is all part of the preparation process before the coating. They are then prepared, dressed and filled to recover any damage. The air is then removed from the alloy and a powder coat finish is applied and cured. There is then a special or bespoke finish of your choice and a thermal treatment. Finally we apply a lacquer coat to make the finish more durable.

Why should you choose The Wheel Specialist? We are the leading alloy wheel repair, refurbishment and customisation specialists providing an excellent, transformation service, in the UK. We have a friendly, approachable team that promise to give you the best finish. We even offer a same day service so your wheels will be finished within one day, while you are at work or over the weekend we are open monday-saturday, to match whatever suits your schedule best.

If you wish to receive an instant quote, we have an online system, which will ask how many wheels, the size, the model and make and your preferred method of service. You will be asked for your preferred date, whether you require same day service and whether you will bring in the car, or just the alloys. We will then get back to you as soon as we possibly can and provide you with an appointment time. If you have any more questions you can get in touch with your nearest branch by phone or email.

It’s been a pleasure dealing with this local, family owned business. They at all times have been courteous, helpful, efficient & they gave value for money.
