Wheel refurbishment

Hi anybody have recommendations for a good wheel refurb company in the Derby, Leicester, Nottingham area.
Single colour only not split rims, all 4 alloys damaged by a tyre fitter when replacing the tyres on the rims a mixture of removing wheel weights with a screwdriver and setting the rim guard too low when taking tyres off putting new tyres on!
I need a quote to give to the tyre fitter.
 
Regards
Graham

I can highly recommend Chris whose business is called Exel Wheels, based in Lincoln, travels widely.
Usually able to offer loan wheels whilst he takes yours away to work on. Turnaround one to two weeks.
 
Home (exelwheels.co.uk)
 
Our 2016 Boxster had a five year birthday, Chris did the wheels and then I had it detailed. The detailer said that the wheel refurb was the best job he had ever seen.
 
Cheapest? Probably not.
Best job? Probably yes.
 
Chris might be able to help with the tyres too.
 
Good luck
 
David

Another recommendation for Chris at Exel wheels, recently used him and will reiterate not the cheapest but excellent quality

If I was doing mine again I’d only take them to Dan Merrin wheels in Draycott people like Drew Pritchard and others take cars there though so it’s expensive but to me it’s second to none. Unfortunately I was weighing it up against one in Derby I was recommended by Porsche and I’ll just say they were terrible they were half the price but the job was less than half as good. As soon as they annoy me enough when I have less pressing things on they’re going to Dan Merrins
