Wheel Refurbishing

Wheels scuffed? Fancy a change? We are based immediately next to Lepsons alloy wheel refurbishers (www.lepsons.com), who have many years experience refurbishing wheels of the most prestigious cars in the world. While your car is with us for paint correction or detailing, why not have the wheels refurbished at the same time? We will arrange everything for you, and give you just one invoice at the end.

About Lepsons

Lepsons is a friendly, no-nonsense, family-run business that has become the UK market leader in the repair, straightening and full re-processing of all types of alloy wheels - often to such a degree that what customers thought were irreparable wheels were returned better than new.

How long does it take?

Typical turnaround time for most wheels including polished finishes is 3 to 4 days, and some split rims and special finishes may take a week. This can be done at the same time as your detail package here at KDS, and will run concurrently.

Aren't SMART repairs quicker and cheaper?

Lepsons safely chemically strip the old paint off your wheels, rather than shot blasting, as this avoids weakening the wheel or rounding off spoke edges and profiles. After stripping, the wheels are checked for defects and repaired before going through a pre-treatment and typically three-coat paint system to replicate an OEM finish. This is much more thorough and careful process.

How much does it cost?

Please click here for latest prices. Lepsons prices include the painting and refitting of centre caps, tyre removal and re-fitting, balancing, valve removal, re-fitting and bolt fitting.


Once your wheels have been refurbished by Lepsons, why not have them coated in GTechniq wheel products to help maintain their immaculate finish? For loose wheels it's £120 (+VAT), or if your car is coming to us for a detail we can remove, treat and re-fit for £160 (+VAT). You can even upgrade to GTechniq Crystal Serum (with two coats of EXO V3) for just an additional £20 per wheel.

We have created a page showing many different types and options of wheels. When discussing with KDS, we may often refer you to this page when running through the choices with you. You can access it by clicking this link, or by navigating via the menu. We forewarn you; it's nearly 200 pictures of wheels!
