Recommendations for alloy wheel machining in GTA

So I need two of my new summer wheels bored out to 72.6mm centre-hub.

Found one place in Concord (Tiremag) that can do it for about $40 a wheel, but I've read about 50/50 good and bad reviews about them, including pictures of a wheel they damaged while installing the tire. So i'm hesitant.

Wanted to see if any of you guys knew somewhere that could do this for a comparable rate. If not, I'll take my chances and just make sure I stand there watching them do the work haha.

Thanks!

tiremag ... the shop is a joke, letting some young punks don't know how to care for customers' car.

I was on the receiving end of such case for a simply change of tires over brand new rims. At the end, no recourse whatsoever.

Perhaps, OP may have better luck this time around, as long you specify only skilled staff is to do your wheel.

Tiremag is a joke. Dont bother going there. Bunch of young smucks working in the back.

Overpriced as well.
