Gutter Rash Repairs - Sydney

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

My car had some gutter rash on a couple of the rims when I bought it and I've done a quick search but can only find interstate recommendations. Obviously I want it done right, and not have to worry about sealers peeling off in patches in the future. The wife has come across a Sydney company called Platinum Wheel Repairs. They appear to do some high end cars and are a mobile service. Might be ok for a daily, but I want the job done properly for my Porsche. 

I remember seeing something a while ago that was recommended in Sydney, but can't find it now.

Who would you recommend please. I'm looking for a long term repair.

Ask @SteveF ...

He recently had his wheels sorted by a mobile dude on his BMW and was more than happy with the results.

I’m sure he’ll chime in soon ...

I've had a BMW Demo touched up via the dealer before handover, and after about 1-2 yrs the clear coat was peeling off in patches. They all look great when done, I just want to make sure it's done right without any issues in the future.

@Nikos I have used Alex +61 437 208 806 a couple of times he is mobile and does a good job but it’s really only the face of the rim.
If you want a shop where you can drop them and get a full front to back refurb try Ben in Artarmon 0414 380 969 also refurbs older Fuchs. Atlas panel shop use him for client and their personal cars

Hi @Nikos

I recently used Ben from Platinum and was very happy with the results. I had some small gutter rash on my BMW 325CI fixed up and they look as good as new. From memory it was around $430.00. He came out to my house and did the repair.

When I had my 944 I was looking to get the teledials redone and I think, but may not be 100% correct, was recommend to Virgin Wheel Repairs. Was quite pricey ($250+ per wheel) but was highly recommended. I didn't end up getting the wheels done in the end but would have probably gone there if I still had the car.

I hope that this helps.

Great thanks.

Looks like I'll go with Ben from Platinum for the wife's daily, and I've put an enquiry into Ben at Sydney Auto Salon regarding my 911.
