Ouch! Try giving him a call, he has repaired wheels that were more badly damaged than yours. G'luck!

Damn... Sorry to see this.

As for Son, yes I am positive he can fix this. The damage I had on a set of wheels was far worse than this and this looks to be a simple job for him. Hit him up and im sure he will set you back to the comfort zone you were once at.

He sure is still in business.

Try calling him again, I believe he's either very busy right now or he is taking some time off to spend his free time in Vietnam.

I believe he may be doing this. I think the last time I spoke with him, he says that he was planning on going back to Vietnam to see his mom.

S65B40,

Son can fix and he's visiting his mom. Poor health.

If you are absolutely in a hurry, I can refer another source but he only works Saturdays (he works for CarMax).

Sorry to hear the bad news, hope all is well with his mom.

It wasn't me who's in a hurry to get the wheels fixed though, it's graves4r6.

Can you post up this person's info? I have 2 wheels that need some work. One has a very very minor curb rash, the other has some scuff marks. Thanks.

He's really, really, really horrible with scheduling and time management. The guy bullshitted me for almost 2 weeks saying he'd come then stopped picking up or calling back. Ended up calling another local guy I found for $20 more who came same day

I've had nothing but great experience with Son. You might have caught him at a really bad time since his mom is having a lot of problems. But I have nothing bad to say about Son, the dude is a stand up guy.
