Hi guys, i have minor damage on two of my 18inch night pack alloys, the diamond cut outer rim only.


The wheel specialist quoted me £150 each alloy which is a no go for me. But the car detailer near me can get them re painted gloss black from the same place £200 all four.

Now the dilemma is does anyone have a picture of there alloys with the silver diamond cut outer lip painted any other colour?

Appreciate any help.

Get another quote for a repair. £150 for minor damage per wheel is twice what it should be. Although diamond cut, if it's only minor kerb rash it can be easily repaired. Had mine done and you cannot see where it was repaired.

Unless of course you do want to paint them black,

I'll do a little more hunting mate, I just never considered getting the whole alloy painted gloss black before and I'm curious now.

Any pictures if any would be appreciated.

I recently had my gloss black multi spokes with green rim done,stripped back and recoated and green rim also redone for £100,took me a couple of weeks and loads of company phone calls and emails with pictures before anyone would even touch it,eventually found a company,and when i asked if the green was still possible he smurked showed me in the workshop and there was the c63 grey with yellow stripes all over it,and said if i can do that then yours is a breeze,fantastic job.Dont know much about alloys but surprised how many companies i went through to get someone to do it.

Aye so there still gloss black but the lip it's self is now painted green?
I have a red a class so I'm kind of restricted, I think I'm going to do away with the diamond cut lip and get it painted gloss black with the rest, kirbs aside I've got a few more marks now due to the pot holes on my area.

I know a guy near me in Gloucestershire who quoted me for Cash all four wheels £160 or £200 through the books but its generally about £35-£50 a tyre, and they do a really good job.

I know this is an old thread but anyidea where you had them done? I've got the motorsport with green edging and am having the same issue!
