Tyres + balancing and alloy wheel refurb

Postby JakeD » Tue Feb 17, 2015 11:37 pm

Right, with Christmas out the way and the end to winter months approaching I can think about cracking on with some more work on my mx5.

I resprayed some wheels, by no means perfect, but will do as a / winter set. I want to get the tyres transferred to them so i can flog the team dynamics ones that are on there at the mo. Any recommendations in th Wigan or NW area....I'm looking to you Wayne!

Next, ive got a set I want refurbing and polishing. I've seen a place called dp tyres in Wigan, anyone used them?

Tony in warrintown is who i trust with tyres/MOT's, he is listed in the discount section Jake, sorry can not help on the rim referb side up here ,no one i have used to recommend , plus i have always done my own, Ste might know somewhere local? but where ever you go it will not be cheap.
Polyanna did a great write up on polishing rims which i am sure he posted it up on here at some point?

Hi Jake I'm looking for a similar thing - new set of tyres and alloy refurb, I'm in Chorlton and looking for North West too. I can't find the details of Tony in Warrington Wayne? What's the name of his company? Ta, Hayls :-)

Did you find it in the end Hayls?

Its in the members discount section, recommended MOT thread.

Been there today, great service. Sorted my MOT no probs, and swapped tyres onto new wheels for me. Top job and a top guy!
