ALLOY WHEEL REFURBISHMENT
BILLERICAY - ESSEX
PAINT IT UK LTD EST. 2004
All of our work is carried out in-house. The refurbishment process can vary from
24 hours, to 72 hours for a full factory finish depending on the style of Wheel.
A large number of other wheel refubishment companies out source parts of their work to us
Our large oven holds up to 36 wheels at a time
Our state of the art CNC lathe for diamond cutting alloy wheels
We dont use any fillers. All damage is TIG welded. We can also repair cracked and buckled wheels
We don't do a quick 'touch up' from the back of a van.
All of our wheels are fully stripped and powder coated inside and out, as they would have been from the factory when new.
All Tyre fitting is included as standard per job.

Upon collection of your Vehicle it is the Customer’s responsibility to re-check Tyre pressures and Wheel Nut Torque settings. Our fully trained Staff will only use Manufacturer and Industry standard guidelines and recommended settings when carrying out any work.
Paint It UK LTD takes no responsibility for the condition of customers ‘TPMS’ Wheel Pressure Sensors or breakages during removal of the valve or stem. These parts are prone to corrosion and in many cases, are a single use rubber valve that has to be replaced every time according to Vehicle Manufacturers upon removal and during Tyre fitting/changing.
Our powder coated finishes are covered with a 3 Year Guarantee upon Date of Invoice. This does not cover Kerbing, Tyre Machine damage or poor use of cleaning materials or wire brushes.
Our Guarantee does not include Diamond Cut finishes. Diamond Cutting is a very precise process which requires specialist equipment and extended time to reproduce to a Factory Finish. Corrosion is a common issue with Diamond Cut finishes, the process of applying a long lasting Powder Coat Lacquer to a Machine Polished Metal surface requires great knowledge and skill regarding baking processes, techniques in application and materials used. Something as simple as a stone chip, slight kerbing, tyre changing or even washing wheels new or refurbished with unsuitable chemicals can cause the Lacquer to deteriorate very quickly and appear cloudy or completely flake away from the surface.
Diamond Cutting requires a thin layer of material to be removed from the surface of the profile of the Wheel using CNC Lathing equipment. Diamond Cut Wheels can only be refurbished a certain amount of times depending on the style of wheel. There are a few common issues with Diamond Cutting that are important to be mindful of.
Wheels that are heavily damaged, out of shape or buckled will need to be TIG Welded, straightened or in extreme cases even need replacing with a completely new Wheel. The quality of Metal used when manufacturing an Alloy Wheel greatly affects how a Wheel will Weld and Machine. Straightening Wheels can improve the balancing and finish of a wheel vastly, but can also lead to Wheels fracturing and requiring further Welding or replacing.
If a Wheel has been Diamond Cut before, or requires more surface material to be machined than for example another Wheel from the same set, two main issues can arise. The first being the shape of a spoke or outer lip may become less prominent or change completely. The second is a term known as a ‘Mapping Line’. Mapping Lines become visible along edges and corners of spokes during the Diamond Cutting process when a Wheel has been machined previously causing the fine amounts of metal being removed to reveal a smooth border of Powder Coat Primer high-lighting the polished surface. We will always aim to minimise to what extent these Mapping Lines appear and our highly skilled Wheel Technicians will advise customers on what to expect and of any issues that may occur when refurbishing their Wheels in an honest and professional manner always.

My wheels were corroded and the paint was flaking, so after seeing some great reviews on here I took my car to Paint it UK.
The end results are fantastic - four "like-new" wheels that really improve my car's overall appearance!
I would definitely recommend Paint it UK - they were friendly, reasonably priced and I wouldn't hesitate to go back!

Julia Drury reviewed Paint it UK Alloy Wheel Refurbishment – 5 star
It has been a very long time since I have received such excellent service from a company. A professional approach with the repair process and possible outcomes clearly explained. My wheel is as good as new. I only wish that my other wheels were as shiny - I'm sure they will be after a good wash. Thanks guys for a job well done. One very satisfied customer!!
Dean Lewis reviewed Paint it UK Alloy Wheel Refurbishment – 5 star
Honestly cannot recommend these boys enough for quality service both in professionalism of their work but also their general mannerism and customer care.
No job is too much for them, even on powder coating stuff outside of wheels, at a price that is right!!!
My first encounter was three years ago and ever since they have looked after me and all my friends like family....
