WARRANTY

PAINTED WHEELS - All our painted wheels come with a 6-month warranty against defect, subject to the damage not having occurred as a result of driver damage or the use of corrosive cleaners. These will dull and damage lacquer over time.

MACHINE CUT WHEELS - Given that lacquered bare alloy is not a strong lasting finish coupled with our climate, the majority of wheel refurbishing companies will only offer a very limited or no warranty for this service.

However, we have developed what we believe to be a fair compromise for our customers who wish to retain this finish.

Defect occurring within 6 months (subject to damage not having occurred due to driver damage or the use of corrosive cleaners which will dull and damage the lacquer overtime).

Have the wheels machine cut again at no charge but with no renewed warranty i.e. if they fail again they are out of warranty.

Have the wheels painted with a fully renewed 6 months warranty as listed above.

Have the wheels machine cut but not lacquered with a 6-month warranty on painted areas only.
