Changing colour of wheels

Although I love the look of the 22” turbines on the L405 the pro’s don’t overcome the cons. The ride is great with the 21’s and also I don’t have to worry every time I go near a kerb. My wheels are mint all round but are standard silver and I would like them black ( black car ) I had a quote of £75 a wheel. And that’s only the front. Sounds expensive?

If they’re going to take them of the car, remove the tyres, strip the existing finish (which they should), repaint, mount tyres, balance and refit then that’s probably fair for where you are. You could probably get it done for slightly less if you don’t mind them spraying straight on to the existing finish and risking some paint peeling. 2011 FL2 TD4 XS Kosrae Green

no. Process is remove wheels from car, deflate tyres and break bead on front of tyre, scotch ( key original paint ) spray front of wheel only and lacquer, re inflate, refit wheels.

I wouldn’t be happy with that!

To put it in perspective, I recently had a 21” rim removed from the car, tyre removed, paint stripped, painted (both sides), diamond turned, lacquered, tyre refitted and balanced for £100. Okay, Cornish prices, but even so... 2011 FL2 TD4 XS Kosrae Green

My life local wheel specialist quoted me £85 a wheel if I supplied them loose wheels.

For that they would remove the tyres, fully strip the finish off the wheel powder coat, and refit tyres and balance.

In reality. Going on prices it would be cheaper to buy another decent set of wheels the same as I’ve got but in black, swap my tyres over and sell my old wheels. The wheels I have can be got in gloss black as well.

Not that it's relevant but I hate with a passion black wheels and you will absolutely ruin the looks of your motor.

To do the job properly the tyres need to be off, and the finish completely stripped. Most good refurbishers will offer powder coating, much better than paint and provides a really hard, durable finish.

I had my Touareg wheels done at £80 per wheel, superb job.

Just in case it helps you, stan is selling some black style 502 wheels (see For Sale and Wanted section) and while there seems some prospect of a deal with someone else, if these were still going (£400 for four) they would be almost as cheap as getting your 21s painted and you would have a spare set for winter tyres etc.

I'm cautious about black wheels as while they can look good if perfect, any little scrape will stand out like a sore thumb due to the light alloy showing through. But your car, your choice. Only Range Rovers since 1988
