Union Rim Repair Toronto?

Has anyone used Union Rim Repair in Toronto before for curbing damage? I have the 19' alloys upgrade that are for the ' 09 335i's.

Damn the wait will suck! I needed to touch up curb rash on one wheel since it will be easier to sell that way, don't want to wait that long to sell them haha.

I took my rims all the way to Carcone's last year, dropped them off and then got a call the next day to come back and pick them up since they are "irreparable". They are currently be fixed as I type from the company Tires23 uses. I will let you know how it works out.

If there's a chunk of metal missing from your wheels, depending on size, some places will say it's irrepairable (depending on the size) because there's a chance that it will crack in the future. The repair is welding on pieces of aluminum to reshape the missing portion.

Anyway checking this thread too since I'm looking to getting my wheels powdercoated (as opposed to refinished). Costwise I found it's not a huge difference in price...

id give them a 7/10, price is ok for what you get.

Id go to Champion Motorsport instead and ask for Peter - he does excellent refinishing, paint and body work.

Just out of curiosity...

doesn't refinishing cost around $150 per wheel? And then it's $200 for powder coated? For $50/wheel, powder coat would almost guarantee a non-flaking repair job.

Btw, I usually fix my own curb rash damage and I haven't had flaking yet? See if the guys who are respraying your wheels are using any type of etching primer or adhesion promoter before they spray the paint down. If you spray a thick layer of paint over smooth clear coat, it'll flake no matter what. And are they just spraying that small area or a larger area? I tend to end up misting the entire spoke up to the center cap where I can hide the respray line.

Damn...maybe I should start my own curb rash repair business.
