I recently used wheel on site to fix a case of peeling paint on one of my OEM wheels and they did a great job.

they're are some local shops that can straighten a bent rim, but it usually takes some time.

Search it on this site and you will get 2-3 shops that can do it, but be prepared to get a spare wheel while the work is getting done.

The only I can think of now (hence my search comment) is Ye Olde Wheel Shope. Yes, it's spelled in Old English or some sh!t like that.

Yesterday I dropped off a set of wheels at Raja's in order to get them opticoated. One of the wheels has slight curb rash so I called wheelsonsite again with the hope that they would repair it at his place. They informed me that they only repair rims that have tires mounted on them and that they actually have to be mounted on a car in order for them to perform the repair. All other shops that I talked to said that it'd be easier for them to work on the wheel while it was off the car.

So now I have to go pick up the wheel from him, take it home, mount it on my car so they can perform the repair & then take it back to Raja's house. What a PITA.

Other than it being a PITA, can you provide feedback on the quality of work they do?

I did provide feedback on the 1st wheel that they did for me (see above) & will do the same once they do the 2nd one.

I've taken multiple wheels to Ole Ye Wheel Shop and have no complaints on their work, however their customer service isn't the best. Your wheels will come out like new afterwards.
