Curb Rash Repair Suggestions?

Anyone recommend a California Bay Area business that can repair the scratches and curb rash on my wheels? Thanks.

Try doing a search on DIY. Are they BMW wheels? I had some curb rash on my wheel and I fixed it myself. It's not that hard. Good Luck.

Thanks. Yes, '99 328i sport BMW wheels. All 4 tires are in moderately bad shape - I'm a DIY-er in many areas, but here I'd rather pay a professional to ensure it's done properly.

THANK YOU! Wheel Techniques is exactly what I was looking for! I'll call them - they're only 45 min from my home.

Thanks, I may give them a call. The place above in Santa Clara quoted approx $175 per wheel, out the door. It was $155, plus some fee for $20. Considering they'll look new when finished, that seems reasonable.

EDIT: Rite-Way Wire & Wheel Specs - thanks!

Mikki, I called Rite-Way this am, and talked w/ Sharon. Only $120 per wheel, plus maybe tax (maybe not). In any case, under $500 out the door for all 4 wheels. And a HUGE bonus is that she can get it done same day, as long as I get my car to her by 8:30a. One day service is a deal-maker (and the cost savings is icing on the cake!).

Thanks for the tip.

viobruin, I can surely tell you where NOT to go. Wheels America in Santa Fe Springs. I don't want to say to much 'cause it's not resolved yet, but believe me bro, don't go there!

I am getting new wheels - for $500. Nice!!!!!

Seriously, I like my stock wheels - a lot. And they'll look like new for $500. Keeping in mind that I very much like my wheels, that's a deal that cannot be beat. If I didn't like the wheels, I would look for new aftermarkets.
