T4 Post Icon Alloys wont balance, where to refurb?

Hi all, My 17" masitaly alloys i love but they don't run true, ive had a few people try adding massive amount of weights on them but i still get the wobble on the steering wheel so they need checking and straightening, can anyone recommend somewhere to get them sorted, cheers in advance

If they don't run true, no amount of balancing is going to make them true.

Is it the wheels and not the tyres?

I'm guessing from what ashsyncrot4 is saying, that one or more of his wheels are buckled, and he's looking for someone to recommend someone local to him, to fix them.

H i guys, sorry for any confusion, Andy is right im looking for someone local to fix them, ive had a few new tyres put on them in the past and every time they have told me that they cant balance them properly because the wheels are slightly buckled and no amount of weights can rectify the buckle, there not bent to look at but defiantly in need of a bit of wizardry

Could recommend someone local to me mate, as I had a buckled alloy fixed but not much use to you in Melton Mowbray, I guess
