  • 19" Rims with a new finish...

    As some of you know I took a trip to a company called "Lap Tab" (www.lap-tab.co.uk) last Thursday and had my rims refurbished and repainted. My original plan was to go for a Charcoal/Anthracite colour but upon viewing the sample rims on display I decided to go for the "Smoked Chrome" finish instead and I have finally got round to getting some pics so here goes...

    I have also included a few pics to show the lack of Rim protector on the Toyo T1-R's that I mentioned in another thread, the rim sits very flush to the tyre and isnt afforded as much protection as it gets with the Conti's...

    Anyhow I think the new colour gives the car a slightly different look

              They look stunning! Was gonna go for polished black on my rims but they look much better. i think that`d look even better with tinted windows.

                      Thanks for the kind words guys

                      The price of the work was very good cos Lap Tab were running a December offer which was 25% off which meant that I got 4 rims done for the price of 3. Cost of the actual refurb and painting worked out at £229 and £94 for removal, refitting and balancing of tyres/wheels = £323 all in!

                      Like I said this was with 25% off so I should imagine that normally the price would be nearer to £400. However, I am going to pass the contact details of Lap Tab's owner onto the VXR-Online Mods later today because he was very very interested in setting up a discount for us so that will only help to make things cheaper.

                      If you go to the website you can see the range of finished they do but bear in mind that you really need to see the sample rims in the flesh before really deciding cos the photo's dont do the finishes justice - hence the reason I changed my mind at the last minute and went for the Smoke Chrome instead of Anthracite.

                      And the other thing that really stands out is that I dropped my car off last Thursday morning at 8am, went for a day out wandering around the Brum Bullring and was called just after 1pm to tell me the work was done - outstanding
