Have read a mixed bag of reviews mainly on RMS - Nu-luk keep getting held up as being the best and with their investment in their business they probably are, but aren't cheap, and still seem to have the odd dis-satisfied customer. This guy seems to offer a resonable service at a reasonable price.

Ricky Boyd I think had a good word of him and used him, you might want to check in with him (RBAutomotive - http://www.rbautomotive.co.uk/) to see if he is putting work from his business out to them.

Place up beside Jonny Scott in Dundonald might be worth a look too - I think they are called Alloy Wheels NI or something like that - they never seem to be short of custom.

Cheers
Read the comments on RMS yesterday, sounded like he began taking on only what he was able to do well, rather than taking on a load of stuff and not doing it properly.

I think these are the other guys that you're talking about.
Nu-Luk i think are great if you want a complete refurb, but maybe not so much for a wee nick

I'm now having my wheels on on my C63, they are grey with a polished face.

400 all in.

a lot of people doing wheels and stuff but only a handful know how do them properly.

i used michael @ polished alloys to do the Raceline wheels on my classic (https://www.scoobynet.com/g/album/3398892) - done a great job for what was paid.

He'll do your wheels again & again until such times you are happy with the finished wheel.

Are they the 19" multi spoke wheels?
At the minute they wheels on my C63 are being powder coated in gloss silver.
Have been toying with black and a diamond cut rim, but not sure, given our climate and diamond cut don't get on too well.
Monday morning is when the car goes in, get it back maybe Thursday night
