    Hi all,

    I am new here. I have just acquired a set of 2nd hand, still in good condition, Alpina style 2 18 inch.
    I'm thinking to refurbish them to 'as new' condition.

    I have searched on the net, there are plenty of them. I honestly don't know what to look.
    Can somebody give me recommendation of wheel refurbishment place that do excellent job and offer pick up and delivery service?

    Also what to look out when wanting to refurbish wheels? As Alpina has this 'badge' will the badges get damage during the process?

    Please kindly enlightened me as I have never done this wheel refurbishment process before.

    Thank you all for any inputs given!
    Josh

    Where is "jakarta"????!?!?
    If youre in the UK then spit n polish down in kent (sittingbourne) are top notch.
    Not too sure about pick up and delivery though...hmm....the alpina badge is on a centre, isnt it? that chould pop out. The guys that do wheels know the score and will advise (if theyre any good!) about things like that.
    I had my style 32's done about a year ago and in standard silver. Not a million miles away from the alpina style, they were £40 a rim (and IN BAD SHAPE!! they were hideous!).

    Hi Luke,

    Mine was buckled (unfortunately) but (fortunately) can be mended. A lot of hardwork.
    I am unsure if it was a replica about the quality of the steel. They use force to return the wheel into it's correct shape.
