Dear Chris,

I would like to recommend The Wheel Specialist, Unit 3 Beech Industrial Estate, Porters Wood, St Albans, Hertfordshire, Al3 6PQ, contact John Tice.

I had had one set of 18-inch AMG alloy wheels replaced by Mercedes-Benz under warranty due to corrosion and now, three years later, my replacement set has started to corrode. My wheels are ‘diamond cut’, which is an expensive refurbishment, so I decided to take the car to The Wheel Specialist for some advice. John, its director, suggested I opt for powder coating, which is a more resilient finish and is guaranteed for a minimum of 12 months, whereas no guarantee could be offered on diamond cutting. Powder coating comes in a range of standard finishes, but I opted for the ‘Black Chrome’, which really set the wheels off (you could of course have the standard silver finish which is an excellent match for the original).

The whole process can be completed in one day, which is very convenient, and includes removal and replacement of tyres, new valves and balancing, and the wheels look brand new. There is a 15 percent discount for Mercedes-Benz club members.
