From what I can gather, Toyota wheels are prone to corrosion, and mine are no exception. :( Will an alloy wheel refurb place be able to sort them, or is it only kerbing and scratches that they can fix?

They'll be able to sort them out for you mate. Don't pay more than 25 a wheel if you're keeping them the same colour though! :thumbsup:

Some Mazda wheels are very bad for this, the Mk3 MX-5 sport model has 17" wheels, the car has only been out 15 months and some owners have already had 2 sets of wheels and are looking for a third set under Warranty. :( The other models in the range have 16" wheels and they seem ok, must be a different manufacturer.

If you go for a full refurb they will shot blast the wheels (with coconut shells!), powder coat, just about any colour you want, bake them in an oven, then laquer them. Cost is about 35 per wheel, but they will look like new and probably last longer. :)
