Does anyone have experience with Wheel Tech in Highland Park? Online reviews look good and they have a pretty nice website.

Anyone have personal experience with Wheels America? They have some pretty scary reviews on google and yelp.

Wheels America will fix wheels for 129 which includes bends and cracks and Wheel Tech is 130 for a bend and 180 for welds. I'm not sure if Wheel Tech is worth the extra price.

I've had a wheel repaired by WheelTech in highland park. My wheel was bent and it was straightened without issue. It was a fairly quick turnaround as well of about 5 hours. I dropped it off at Fields BMW in northfield and they took care of the rest. Total was about $120 with fields matters membership.

Thanks! I'm really leaning towards WheelTech, although my poor vs8.2 rim may not be repairable.

I've been thinking of custom powder coats and I think a brushed silver face with monaco blue barrel would be pretty sweet.

2 will be a pretty easy fix. 1 has a crack and will probably need to be replaced.

I'm scrapping the monaco blue barrel. Saw pics online of a similar paint scheme and looks ricey.
