Had my wheels done as you can see in the before shots the standard finish does not hold up well at all with corrosion coming through, a single layer coating on the rear inconsistent colour on the front. In the after shots this is the result of an acid dip followed by shot balsting and then a 3 layer coating finished in Anthracite.

 

4 day turnaround, wheels and valve off, all replaced and rebalanced with gloss black stick on weights :D

 

used these chaps - very pleased with the results
