Rim Repair near rockvill ?

Anyone know of any place that fixes rims near Rockville MD?

I have some curb rash and from what i understand if you find a good person then the repair should be invisible. Dose anyone have any experience?

Thanks !

If you have groves in the rim from rubbing the curb can they fix that?

Thank you

i've used rimdoc quite a few times and they do excellent work. i'm sure there are others around that fix curb rash too. it doesnt seem to be a very complex job if you have the right tools and experience but all of mine came out perfect such that you cant tell where on the wheel the rash used to be.

Hmmm, I've only had wheels with polished lips not necessarily chrome. I'd take a look at some of the mother's mag/wheel polish and see if it can be used on chrome (fairly certain it can be). Either way, it will not be a quick job since you have to buff the hell out of that stuff to get a shine. Make sure you also get some gloves...
