      Diamond cut wheels are nice to look at but expensive to repair as it has to go to a wheel specialist with the diamond cut equipment. The diamond cut stuff don't last long either, as soon as the lacquer chips you start getting white patches behind the lacquer.



      'Does a diamond cut finish last?



      Diamond cut wheels will not retain their finish for as long as a powder coated wheel. Any damage to the lacquer however small will allow water to seep in-between the lacquer and the alloy leaving ?milky patches? on the diamond cut finish area.'

        Got a quote back from wheel pro Scotland - I'm looking at ?430 for all 4 ... I reckon I'll need to wait until after my holiday in July as I fully expect the kids will bankrupt me while we're there! :-/



        I knew it would be expensive. If it was my wheels i would powder coat it to just one colour. I had diamond cut wheels before and got kerbed, refurb guy just sanded it down to bare metal and not lacquer it after. Without the lacquer the water stains really stick to it and leave a mark hard to get wash off.
