    Alloy Wheel Refurbishment question?

    Hey Guys,

    Been down to my local tyres place today and he's started reburbing alloy wheels. So as you do i got a quote off him to reburb my MV1's from Silver to dark grey and clean all the kerbing up on them. Told him I want a clean finish and to do a proper job (Taking the tyre off and doing it). He also showed me some of his work his done and it looks pretty good. ATM he was doing some 20", Polishing the lips on them and spraying them silver in the centre, doing a great job from the looks of it. Now he's quoted me 120 for the four as my rear two will need minor repair and quick spray? What do you guys think? sounds a bit to cheap?

    Thanks

    Bhav

    are they one peice alloys?

    120 is not bad for all 4, usually the going rate is 40-50 a wheel

    It does sound cheap, but if you saw his work is good then have a go on it.
