Last year there was enough people up here in norcal that needed wheels to be repaired that it was worth the drive up for him. I think he mentioned something about 20-25 wheels and he hit that mark no problem and made a car meet out of it combined with door ding repair. I'm sure if you talk to him and set up some sort of meet and have a certain number of wheels, I'm thinking that he'd be willing to drive down to SD on a free weekend.

Or just wait until March when he will be onsite at LTBMW's grand opening in El Monte.

I just spoke to him today and told him that there are people in SD who are interested in having him come down. He says he will if someone sets up a date and place and guarantee that there will be plenty of work for him to do.

If there was a deep curb rash or the lip is bent, does he weld aluminum and correct the bent lip on a machine?

Son Tran starts at $60 per wheel or $60 per rash mark?

+1 Son Tran

He helped me fix a pothole rash. His attention to detail amazing.

As for Tee212, I don't think he has a machine to fix bent lips. I suggest going to:

Wheel Repair Specialist
1330 E Pomona St
Santa Ana, CA 92705
(714) 973-1741

Wheel Repair Specialist restored bent lip as wheel as worked out the rotation on my deep dish Racing Hart CXR 19X10.5

Ya I went to Jeff at WRS about 5 years ago to get my work equips repaired. Was just curious if son tran had the machinery to repair a larger job.

I had the pleasure of having the wheel guru himself come down and repair a couple curb rashes on my 313's ... great quality work!!

He's such a genuine, cool cat ... as with everyone else in this thread, I recommend him HIGHLY ... even for the stories that he can tell you, alone!!
