Alloy Wheels Repair in Philadelphia Area

Just wanted to let everyone know that I had a great experience with James Walker of Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists today.

He a magician that made my two damaged 162s look like new.

The transaction was quick (an hour or so), relatively inexpensive and convenient (he came to my office).

Feel free to PM for his contact info.

Has anyone else had a good experience with Alloy Wheel Repair Specialist? I know the last time this post was update was almost a year ago but I happened to come across them on the road (they had a truck advertising their business) and wanted to see if anyone else has used their business.

I have a slightly dented rim (it was worse then before) and I feel a slight vibration when going over 60mph.

Thanks in advance!

James Did my wheels also. Very good, couldn't even tell it was damaged.
But now, 2 months later the finish is peeling where he did the repair. I talked to him and he's coming back out to my place to redo it for free!
He does work for local BMW(and other) dealers in the Philly area.
I would definatly recommend him.
Fast, inexpensive, and he comes to you!!!
His business# is 610-970-8768. Tell him Randy from the car wash sent you.

canesr1,

Thanks for the reply and I'm glad to hear that your experience with them has been great. Did you have work done on your rim because it was dented also? I'm thinking maybe I should follow up with my dealership and see if they work with an alloy repair vendor though I highly doubt it.

How bad was the damage done to your rim and how much did it cost you to get the damage repaired?

Thanks again!!!

Damage wasn't too bad. I curbed it parking...about a 4 inch curb rash w/ minor dent. I believe he charged me $75.
And FYI- This is the guy who goes to dealers to do their work(he does west german BMW, infiniti(willow grove) and VARIOUS other dealers. So if you go to a dealer, chances are you are going to be paying ALOT more for the same fix. Cut out the middle-man/stealership. If james can't fix it on the spot, he has a place he sends them out to.

He jacks up the car and removes the tire/wheel. he doesn't remove the tire from the wheel, just from the car. He then goes into his magical truck and reappears in 30 minutes with a brand new-looking wheel!

He's never had to remove the wheel and /or tire for any of my repairs - but they were just cosmetic scrapes.
