    If you pop in to Skidz they’ll be happy to sell you just the wheels without any tyres or swap the tyres over for you. They’ll not force you to take a set of tyres with the wheels and if you want to take them away and have the tyres fitted elsewhere they’ll just give you the alloys. Personally I’d get the tyres for you then if anything happens they’ll take the hit for getting it replaced.
    They also do refurbishing too and you can talk to them about that too ... I’ve never used the place you mentioned nor have I heard of anyone using them either but if you want a couple of places that I have used I’ll certainly pass them on to you. All have great reputations and are fairly local to you.

    You only need two tools in life WD40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should use WD40 and if it moves and shouldn't use Duct Tape.

    The place near us is called Wheel Wizards. It's the same place our local MINI dealership uses to get wheels refurbished so they are certainly up to the task.

    There’s we restore alloys in Stirling or the wheel Specialist in Cumbernauld ... and if it’s just a cheap simple powder coat you want then there’s back o hill powder coating ...
