Wheel Repair Cost

Is $600 (quote from USA Wheels) a lot for all 4 wheels to be repaired? The front/back right side definitely need to be repaired since I brushed a curb in order to avoid rear ending someone that doesn't believe in brake lights.

I've been getting quotes and they all seem to be about $200 per wheel. Maybe it just more out here in the SF Bay Area?

It will depend on what you're doing to the wheels. Curb rash repair + powder coating all four, I'd say that's about right.

Hmm I don't know about powder coating unless they have to strip the entire wheel and repaint it. USA Wheels did say they remove everything and redo it to OEM specs including balancing the wheels.

Seems pretty steep if the wheels aren't bent.

Sounds like they're powder coating them. With normal paint you can just clean up the area and then spray over. With powder coating you have to strip the wheel down to the bare metal, then recoat them.

I just went through this -- bought an E92 with mild curb rash on all 4 wheels. None were cracked, none appeared bent, no imbalance or vibration at any speed so I think it was just cosmetic curb rash. I got quotes ranging from $150 to $200 per wheel. So $600 for all four seems to be in line.

I decided to buy a nice used set instead, in a style that I like better than the OEM wheel. Bought a near-perfect set of four for $600, with half-used tires -- same $$ I would have paid to have my originals refinished.

There are deals out there on used wheels if you're not in a hurry -- CL, e-bay, or this forum. I saw a ton of used wheels for sale that were actually worse than mine, so it took me a while to find what I wanted, in excellent condition, close to home to avoid shipping costs.

GL whatever you decide to do.

$150 per wheel is what I paid for straightening. For recon or paint that seems reasonable.

I do get vibration at 80+ MPH but it could be the crappy RFTs.


Thanks for the advice guys!

Depends what you mean by 'repaired'?
I bought a set of 189's here locally and just had them powdercoated and they also sanded and fixed all the curb rash on them (and there was a fair amount of curb rash on all 4 wheels - but they are smooth as glass now around the edges where rash was)
My total was $85/wheel......came to $360+ w/tax...

If you mean 'repaired' as in they are severely bent, etc then $600 is probably in line
