Terms of service
Bespoke steering wheels are complex items and hand-made to order. Whilst we aim to deliver the majority of bespoke steering wheels within 20-25 working days, delays can occur and can take up to 30 working days and in some instances and beyond. Any delays will be communicated with the customer and a new completion date will be issued where possible. PB Forged Wheels are also made to order and carry a lead time of 4 to 8 weeks depending on the specification chosen by the customer. Rush orders and Faster shipping is available, please get in touch for rates and delivery times (PB Forged Wheels only).
For orders that experience delays caused by shipping, couriers or customs, Premium Bespoke AutoWorks and PB Forged Wheels are not liable. In these instances no refunds on products or the cost of shipping are applicable.
Some parts of the production process are outsourced. This varies on vehicle make, model, year and the required modifications. If there are any issues in our supply chain such as delayed delivery of parts, faulty parts, suppliers closing business, additional waiting times, you will be updated by our production team at first notice.
*Not including public holidays or weekends*
Some vehicles will require pre inspection before an order is started. This will subsequently increase the order lead time. For orders that fall into this category any costs associated such as, travel, pre inspection, parts removal and vehicle diagnosis will be at the cost of the customer.
Airbag supply is only available on orders that include installation or are collected by the customer (This does not include airbag covers).
Failure to disclose or confirm vehicle details and functionality when ordering (such as lane tracking assist, heated steering wheel functions, PCD, centre bore and any other vehicle specific functions) when placing your order will result in additional charges and time to rectify at the customers cost (if possible) or the cancellation of your order with no refund offered.
Premium Bespoke AutoWorks can not and does not guarantee colour matching due to using different materials to all companies. Colours need to be confirmed at the point of payment. Failure to communicate the need for a colour match will result in time and cost to rectify at the customers expense.
Steering wheel functions may differ or not be available for vehicles that have been damage repaired. If your vehicle has previously been damaged, (declared a write off or had unrecorded damage) and has now been repaired and you experience a loss of functionality we will be happy to investigate any/ all issues. However, this will be at the customers cost as we cannot guarantee your vehicle has been repaired to manufacturer standards.
Premium Bespoke AutoWorks are not liable for vehicle battery issues including battery failures. Steering wheels and other electronic products and services are additional to your vehicle’s factory specification. Therefore, it is the customers responsibility to ensure the battery is an appropriate standard to operate any and all upgrades installed on the vehicle. Where required/ possible Premium Bespoke AutoWorks will provide additional hardware for vehicles with anti-theft software and/ or functional instructions on how to make the most of your product. This includes but is not limited to powering the device on and off manually (for steering wheels fitted with an LED unit). Premium Bespoke AutoWorks will provide additional hardware, software and/ or instruction for eligible orders. Therefore these orders are not eligible for a refund. Some vehicles do not have a 12v power source in/ around the steering wheel/ clockspring area and will need additional wiring/ pins/ 12v supply to be installed in order to make the most of your bespoke steering wheel. Vehicles that require this type of installation are also not eligible for a refund.
If any stakeholders (i.e. insurance, finance companies, registered keepers etc) must be informed of any changes made to your vehicle the customer takes full responsibility of doing so. This includes deciding on whether to go through with any and all modifications.
It is the customers responsibility to check that all details are correct on the sales quote and invoice such as delivery address and items requested. Premium Bespoke AutoWorks/PB Forged Wheels can not be held responsible for any errors. Any and all confirmed changes made to steering wheel specifications at the request of the customer or Premium Bespoke AutoWorks will result in a new order form being generated and the order being exempt from a refund.
We use a selection of OEM and aftermarket parts when building our bespoke steering wheels. The steering wheel core, airbag (if applicable) and airbag mounting plate will be OEM. Any associated, or necessary additional parts used can be aftermarket or OEM depending on the final specification of the steering wheel and the make, model, year and functions of the vehicle that it will be installed on. Our bespoke steering wheels are only compatible when installed in isolation. If you plan on installing one of our bespoke steering wheels as part of additional work (i.e. keyless entry, infotainment or software updates) please make this known at the time of your purchase. Failure to inform Premium Bespoke AutoWorks at the time of purchase regarding any additional work will result in, no refunds, returns or exchanges upon the realisation of our product/s being uncompatible.
PB Forged and PB Carbon Wheels require a 60% production deposit to begin an order for custom made wheels. By paying this deposit the customer gives their approval to manufacture their wheel order to the specifications outlined in this sales quote. The production deposit is non refundable and all sales are final. By paying the deposit, the Customer agrees not to cancel or dispute payment(s) for any reason.
Digital cluster retrofits consist of brand new and refurbished parts for compatible vehicles. All parts required for a complete installation are covered under warranty.

For PB Forged wheels & steering wheel warranty claims, the steering wheel must not be modified or damaged from its original condition. Please note that all warranty work will be carried out at our fitting centre so the correct diagnosis and inspection can be carried out. Upon inspection, If we determine any/ all faults to be the result of tampering or negligence your warranty will be void. In addition, if PB Forged wheels and/ or the steering wheel has been installed on a vehicle that already has modifications, any/ all faults must be diagnosed by a Premium Bespoke AutoWorks technician at the customers cost before we can accept a root cause. Failure to do so will void your warranty. Any additional costs such as travel, accommodation or rental vehicles are not our responsibility and can not be claimed for. In instances where Premium Bespoke AutoWorks have not been notified of any issues upon installation no claims can be made against Premium Bespoke AutoWorks for additional parts and labour.
