Alloy Wheel Repair / Resurfacing

Post by Mr. Bridgestone » Fri Mar 25, 2011 9:45 am

I was getting ready to pull the summer wheels out for the Mini, and a gentleman came in to our shop who does alloy wheel repair and refinishing. Mine had some general curb rash, pitting and other defects, so I thought I would give him a try. He took the four wheels at 10:00, I had them back at 3:30. I asked him to go darker than the factory silver, more of light gun metal. He did an amazing job. The wheels look perfectly new, and are just the right shade. Highly recommended.

I'm not sure if he is looking to have people contact him directly or go through a shop, but I will check and update. I will also post pictures of the wheels, or you can stop by and check them out.

The best part is the quick turn around and he is a local guy, so that is cool.

I was literally at the exact same point when he walked in. I talked to him, settle on the price, and he took the wheels away. They look amazing. I had a couple that were pretty messed up, so he had his work cut out for him. Nice guy too.

If you have ever tried to resurface, repair, and repaint wheels, the price is worth not having to do it yourself.. :D

Can you post the name and contact info for the wheel refinisher? I have some wheels that need work. Thanks.
