We use Pristine and in my opinion their finishes are superior to any OEM wheel paint finish. They paint the whole rim to a very high spec including the reverse side of the spokes and the rear well.

Not the cheapest but definitely one of the best!

Never had a single issue or complaint in hundreds of sets we've done with them over the years.

And the finish lasts - they painted some VOLK CE28N for my old S2000 and the wheels still look great 5 years on!

Pristine did mine in hyper black and the finish is spot on still 8k miles later and that is a ring trip, Wales and IOM run......

You might like to try these guys and just down the coast from you,

They have done my last 4 BM's, 2 mini's and a shed load of vauxhalls over the years including the 1M with no issues, I usually keep a car for 3 years or so and have never had to get any of the alloys repainted
