Hi Guys

Had my 442M refurbed and powder coated BMW Ferric Grey last week. The weather was good so I gave the car a spruce up.

Let me know what you think. Oh and under present conditions I was more that 2 Metres away from anyone.

Cheers and welcome any feedback.

Wheels look great and they will last much longer now they aren't diamond cut!

Thanks.

I really rate the Conti Sport Contact 5 SSR rum flat tyres.

They have good wet and dry grip. They handle the power of my 340i.

Run flat tyres seem to be improving all the time nowadays.

Great looking F31.
My 442 are just starting to blow the lacquer in places. What was the cost of your refurb? may have to go that route after the summer and ferric grey looks good.

The refurb was done by a family friend. Cost me gbp 265 for all four wheels.
That was removal of tyres and cleaning up valves, complete strip down of wheels, repairs made to the wheels, shot blasted, powder coated, baked and valves and tyres put back on.
Took 2 days as well. So I'm very happy.

Seems quite cheap for all 4 wheels - who did it?

My uncles friend runs a powder coating firm for motor bike parts.

Does wheels when business is quite.
