Anyone know of a decent place to have some wheels refinished? I'd like to have my 162s done and was quoted $600 for all 4 so far. At that price I might as well add to it and buy a new set...

rollos???

most places ive been like to charge ~ $100 per wheel (or more). Not something I'd cheap out on tho. Kind of like cheaping out on a paint job. What if you get it done cheaply and arent satisfied with the quality??

Some of the guys that work at these shops will work on the side for a LOT less but u gota be sneaky and talk to the right person.

Rollos quoted me 100 a wheel.

Go to SABS - they charge $100 a wheel w/ free remount.

If you live near Clear Lake, go to Hubcap Depot. Tell me before you do so I can get you a discount - their normal prices are $135 a wheel.

What side of town are you on? I have a guy that does it for less than $100.
As mentioned before, he does it on the side.

Everyone has to join this E90/92 houston group.
There is a lot of drama, cheating, fights, and food involved:

Thanks fellas... Yea, been using BabyEater for a few years now and always seems to throw some people off. Well, it was between BabyEater or Cupcake... Figured BabyEater was a better fit...

Where about's the Westside Dr. Nate? Fry and Mason area for me mainly, but work takes me to all the hospitals around town.

Anyone in the Houston area have their e92/93 rigged up with the Eisenmann Race? I'm looking to get that as my first big mod and would like to hear it in person. From what I hear, the YouTube videos just don't seem to do it any justice...
