“Fantastic service, cant fault the worksmanship and quality of my wheels.”


Guys just a quick thank you for the transformation of the Wife’s vehicle (please see below) truly superb service.


“Everything was so easy. Easy to make an appointment. Easy to get there. easy people to deal with. They even arranged for a taxi to get me back to work after dropping the car off.”

“Great service and great job as always. Not the cheapest but certainly worth the extra for a full refurb. Thanks guys. Hope not to see you again too soon!”

“From my first phone call enquiry the young lady at Manchester, Donna, was very helpful. No hard sell, just helpful information. This helped me to make a very quick decision to bring my business to The Wheel Specialist.
On the day I booked in to have the work done, I was met by very professional people and was assured that everything was going to fine and everything was done just as I wanted to be.

When I came to collect my vehicle , I was given time with Donna to explain how to look after the finished wheels and how to ensure how I could get maximum benefit from experience of placing my faith in The Wheel Specialist people.

Thank you very much to all the people at Manchester.”

“Donna really knows her stuff – I’ve trusted her recommendation twice, and twice she’s been right and I’ve loved the wheels. Mark is a safe pair of hands and I trust him with my car, and to do a great job. Will be going again.”

“Donna and the team were very knowledgeable and helpful. They rectified a few issues caused by Kwikfit on all four of my wheels and would definitely use them again!”

“An excellent and very professional service. Friendly and helpful from the first enquirer to the refitting of the refurbished diamond cut 19inch wheel.

Highly recommend.”

“great customer care , I got good advice about colour change to my wheels, they look amazing thanks great work!!!”

“Excellent service, highly recommended! Wheels were completed in a full day as promised. Very fair price too. My wheels look better than when I first bought the car! VW Golf Mark V 18" Charleston alloys. Thanks very much Wheel Specialist, keep up the awesome work.”

“Excellent. Donna was brilliant and the wheels are a great finish.

Would recommend.”

“I just had to email you to say how pleased I am with my wheels!! My partner brought my Mini home last night and I couldn’t believe the transformation, they were like brand new alloys! They were in a terrible state, flaking badly, discoloured and it looked like they had contracted some kind of alloy disease which mini informed me was a common problem with my type of alloy.

I have spread the word around my workplace and friends who are also shocked at how wonderful they now look! One of my friends asked me why I had the outer rim done silver when it was previously black, it was originally silver!!

I’m so pleased with them now thank you so much I would recommend the wheel specialist to everyone!”

“Just had to mail you to let you know how pleased I am with the wheel refurbishment you carried out on my Jaguar. It is amazing how it lifts the car’s image so much and the quality is first class. I will recommend you every time.”

“I have seen lots of different wheel refurbishment during my twenty plus years in the retail motor industry.
The standard of work by this company exceeds any I have seen, their level of expertise and professionalism unsurpassed and their customer service is just exemplary.

I normally never give feedback but this company certainly deserve special consideration for anyone who wants the best job doing when it comes to wheel refurbishment.”

“Thanks very much for the excellent service & truly amazing results you have achieved on the rather shabby set of TVR alloys I brought to you for refurbishment.
I could have had them powder coated elsewhere for about half the price, but in all honesty, I am so glad I entrusted the job to you because the quality of finish you've achieved is many times better than I would have expected.
My only reservation is that now my car will need refurbishing to match the wheels :-)”

“Just a quick note to say I am over the moon with the wheels!”

“Thank you for the excellent service that you provided in refurbishing the alloy wheels on my Lexus.
From the initial inspection and quote to completion of the work I felt that I was dealing with friendly, competent and professional people.
I am very please with the finished result and will be happy to recommend you to friends and family.”

“I just want to say thanks for the work you did yesterday to give me a great set of wheels. You really are, “The Professionals”. After dropping the car off, Andy took my wife and I to the station and next day Donna picked us up. You don’t get service like that anywhere. But the best thing was seeing what a brilliant job you did. So many times today we buy things that don’t quite come up to the standard we expect, but in your case, they do. There are literally hundreds of people who, “do alloy wheels”. Usually they are tyre fitters doing a sideline. Their quality of work cannot be compared with yours. Trouble is, I need to have my car valeted to match the wheels.
Oh, I must say also, what a good job you did when balancing the wheels. I could tell the difference immediately. I would and will recommend you to anyone who is looking for,”the best”.”

“Thank you , so much, excellent service, we were more pleased when we turned up seeing the wheels transformed, than the day before picking it up from the actual dealers.

(Searching the web and coming across you,really paid off!)”

“Just want to put in writing my thanks for the first-class job your boys did on the TT’s alloys.
I was a little apprehensive about what could go wrong because they are split rim, but the fact that you managed to split and refurbish all the wheels without any issues shows that you know exactly what you are doing.
The finish on the wheels is excellent. The fact that you can replace tyres, when the time comes, is a bonus.
Thank you for your advice and help Donna, and pass on my thanks again to your colleagues.”

“Just wanted to say thank you very much, the wheels look good and today, as you said, tyre pressures are still set.

As I’m not getting any younger, as you suggested, I have had my ‘nuts’ checked as well… they were fine … !!

Dealing with your Business was ‘ spot on ‘ from start to finish …”

“I would just like to take the time to thank every one involved in restoring my wheels I am overjoyed with them.
I can honestly say you offer a quality and extremely professional service and will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone that asks. I have already had many nice comments about the wheels, once again thank you and I wish you all the best.”

“Just to say a massive thank you for sorting out the re-furb on my wheels,we are well pleased, pleasant staff, very professional top class job, if you need to quote me for a grand job do not hesitate to contact me, long may the company continue in the future.”

“I was in earlier today picking the Focus ST wheels up and promised that I would send the link to Focus RSOC that I mentioned.”

“Great job – many thanks – really conscious now that the tyres & rest of the car needs a deep clean & polish!”

“Just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone at The Wheel Specialist, I really couldn't be happier with my wheels now. Anyone wanting to have their rims refurbished should come directly to you, the quality of the work and service is genuinely second to none.”

“Please pass on my thanks to the team who did such a great job of our wheels on our TT.

I’d recommend you guys to anyone.”

“I had the wheels on my S60R refurbished in gunmetal on the 31/05, having had a chance to look at them when it wasn't raining I just wanted to say thank you for the superb finish you achieved on the wheels and the excellent service from your team throughout the process. I will recommend TWS Manchester to all my friends and colleagues.”

“Just a short note to say thank you for the excellent service you provided in refurbing my Mazda RX8 wheels. I did a lot of research before I chose the wheel specialist and you certainly lived up to your name. The finish was flawless and all completed in a day. Thanks for allowing me to clutter up your office while I waited and for the coffee. I will have no hesitation recommending you to all my friends.”

Wheel Refurbishment

“Just a quick email to say that the wheels you refurbished on our Subaru Legacy estate in Gunmetal have really enhanced the appearance of the car – change of colour from silver to gunmetal was worthwhile and the work has been done very professionally.The journey from Wirral to Manchester was worthwhile to have them done in a proper workshop to a high standard.”

“I would like to forward my thanks and appreciation for a very professional and friendly service received from you and the team at “The Wheel Specialist”. My Jeep Grand Cherokee really does look Grand.

I recommend your service to ALL vehicle owners.”

“Just a note to say how pleased I am at the refurbishment of my alloy wheels, I had a mobile refurb out to do them, they were at it for 3 days, the job was atrocious, I needed to call in the professionals, the wheels were stripped, powder coated and looking like a million dollars in just a few hours, I can’t thank you enough, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone, you are courteous, professional at what you do, informative, all in all, a great service, once again, thanks.

“Thank you for the attention to detail with the refurb of my wheels yesterday 30/01/12.

The colour and finish has enhanced the car and brought it up to date with newer models, I am very pleased with the work and the professional way you and Andy kept me informed with the progress.

I would have no hesitation in recommending your work to my friends.”

“Many thanks for your courteous, efficient and professional service. The wheels are absolutely superb; the refurb was far and away the best money I’ve ever spent on a car! I shall recommend you without hesitation.”

“Having seen the wheels in daylight for the first time today I am absolutely delighted with them, they look fantastic !

Thanks again.”

“Just a quick note to thank you and the team for the fantastic service and refurbishment work that was carried out on the South African Rostyle wheels for our 1975 South African Beetle. These just add the final finishing touches to the overall refurbishment of the vehicle. No doubt the vehicle will turn heads and I would be more than happy to recommend you and your team to anyone.

I have added the before and after picture we talked about for your use.

“I am, indeed, delighted with my newly refurbished wheels, and I’m very happy with the colour choice I eventually made!

Thank you for being good enough to let me hang around your office all day; it was actually a most enjoyable day as it turned out, with a great result at the end. I’ve now completely detailed the car and it looks considerably better than new, something which wouldn’t have been true had the wheels not been looking as good as they do. Thank you also for taking the extra time to fix the minor issue caused by the significant corrosion on one of the wheels – very much appreciated.

I shall doubtless see you again when I need new tyres, having now discovered your existence and your high standards in both service and care of the wheels / car.”

“Yesterday I took my car into your Manchester branch for a refurb on all four wheels. I have to say what a great experience it was.

Right from the beginning with the very helpful and knowledgeable receptionist Donna to Andy and Mark who did a great job on the car.

As we stayed in Manchester, they promised to call at 12.30 with an update. They did this and the car was ready at 2.00.

I can’t praise them enough and would recommend them to anyone. If you would like to forward this message, that is fine.”

“Just want to say thanks for the great job you did on my tired looking BMW wheels, they’re now looking like new again!

I wont hesitate to pass on your details to anyone I know that is looking at getting their wheels refurbished.

Please pass on my thanks to your team and also thanks once again for removal of the broken bolt and replacement.”

“Firstly, can I pass on a big thanks to you all there for doing a fantastic refurb job on my BMW alloys a few weeks ago. I’ve finally got the centre caps in and they look as good as new.”

“I just wanted to say the wheels are amazing, they look so much better than I thought they ever could. Please could you thank from me everyone involved in refurbing the wheels.
I’ll be sure to recommend the wheel specialist any time anyone asks for a refurb company.”

“Im so pleased with the work that you have done they look great. I’m also glad that I changed to the chrome valves. I would recommend your company without a doubt.”

“It’s massively late but I wanted to say thank you for the excellent job you did refurbishing the alloys on my Yaris T Sport a couple of months back. The finish is top quality and they look great!”

“Hello to all the wheel refurbishment team.

Just thought i would drop you line to thank you very much for the brilliant job you did on my Skoda Octavia wheels where you fully refurbished my wheels in charcoal/anthracite colour.
The wheel finish was perfect and looks 100% better. it was the finishing touch to the car that i wanted.

Many thanks to all involved.
next door neighbour is seriously thinking of bringing his BMW car to get it wheels refurbished by yourselves.

Once again many thanks to a great job.”

“I just wanted to say thanks to you, the job you have done on my wheel is fantastic I'm amazed at the finish it has made my car look 100 % better. and your service was brilliant.”

“Thank you for the highly professional job which your staff carried out in refurbishing the four alloy wheels on my Mercedes E320 today.
I shall have no hesitation in recommending your services to my colleagues and friends.”

“You restored the wheels from my 1998 Jag XJ8 back in September and I just wanted to say thanks for the excellent job. Most people who know what the wheels were like don’t believe they’re the same wheels!

Fantastic results as the before and after pictures show.”

“I would like to record my complete satisfaction with the four wheels you refurbished last Tuesday the 10th of August (10). Having brought the car in at 8am the work was complete by 5 30pm and the result I am sure could not be beaten
I will certainly recommend you to all who wish to have their vehicles done.”

“Just to let you and your guys know that the refurbished wheels are absolutely terrific!! I am very, very, pleased. They are also perfect balance, and very easy to clean. I think you guys can teach tyre retailers something about wheel balancing. I put another layer of wheel wax on today, but could only clean the wheels not the car, what with this hose-pipe ban!!
I shall recommend your service, (actually already have on the UK jaguar forum).”

“BMW Racedays

Performance BMW Magazine were about to do 3 x 6 page features on our Race School & Race Cars, with that in mind and knowing the photographers would be taking close up pictures picking up every detail, we approached The Wheel Specialist, Manchester.

We had 2 problems: (1). Due to the nature of our business our wheels are constantly battered and bruised, but the finish had to be perfect for the photo shoot! (2). We had very little time to go until the shoot!

Donna was fantastic, we left with absolute confidence that all the wheels would arrive back in time and looking fantastic.. And they did!!
Awesome job guys… Thanks from everybody at BMW Race Days”
