Well after searching for a place to refurb my 108s and looking at around the £300 to £400 mark with a recommendation from a forum member I called city wheels Birmingham and the advised £25 per wheel :wink: what's the catch I thought so at £100 I thought nothing lost nothing gained so dropped wheels off minus tyres on Friday morning but just a quick note need to be stripped first then once star removed bolts need to be put back in as to not get powder coat in threads. So Tuesday pm gets a text your wheels are ready for collection :D wow ok so picked up this morning and to say I am impressed with my £100 wheels is a understatement they look fab I have gone with sparkle silver for the barrels and mid grey for the stars there are lots of colours to choose from so each to there own I suppose will post more picks once fitted hope this helps some ops save some cash to spend on more upgrades

They look brilliant Simon. When my 108s need refurbishment I will try these guys. When you re-assembled your wheels did you use a torque wrench?

yes they were torqued to 12.9nm and thread lock on each bolt time consuming but well worth it

That's interesting as I come down to Birmingham once a week and my MV2s need refurbishment. I'll ask them for a quote.

The only issue for me is that my Coupe is a daily driver so I'm looking for somewhere that does an same day service if possible.

Did you need to keep the spokes matched to the rim they were removed from?

I think they do a day service you would need to speak to them :roll:

no they are identical mix and match :thumbsup:
Kev, the spokes are different for the front and rears mate... They are different because of the offsets, mr wilks should be able to confirm which is which.
