    There used to be a little engineering workshop behind Elite in Rainham Essex who did all their wheel machining, unfortunately the fella who owned it died some years ago, but they must have somebody else who now does it for them, call them on 01708 525577 and ask for Bram (Paul Bramley) and im sure he will point you in the right direction.

    Haven't had them done yet. I think it depends on the amount to be machined out and any they need to have a look first. Approx 20 ish each I was quoted on the phone.
