Yes. I just went through the hassle of having New Years Metal Finishing ruin my expensive lips. They will destroy anything you bring them and will cost more in the long run just to fix their problems.
After the mess I took the very damaged and rough 7inch lips to M&M wheel repair in anaheim. They came out amazing! Complete MIRROR polish. Ask for carlos. He has rebuilt and refinished my 18x12 ccws, 19x11.5 hre, 19x10 racinghart, and 19x11.5 -36 Leon Hardiritt. Top notch work for the lowest price you'll find!

Default Wheel repair shop

Hey fellas, so I'm looking for a rim repair shop in SoCal. My friend is leaving the country and wanted his wheels fixed while he was gone. Some of the wheels have rashes and 1 has a dent that isn't leaking any air. Any suggestions? He would love to have me go to a high quality shop.

Just came back from Son in Westminster! Amazed by how hospitable he is, truly puts the customer's needs first. He's been doing this since 1998 so I felt pretty confident going to him. Turned out great and finished within about an hour!

I also visited Son in Westminster and he started to repair my wheels (couldn't color match on the spot because my yellow is so bright), but I haven't been able to get time on his schedule to finish the job He's a very busy guy. He offered to come out to my area (south bay) to finish the job, but that was well over two months ago. I kind of gave up trying to work into his schedule at this point.

Does anybody know if there's a shop who could finish repairing my wheels? The curb rash itself is gone, as Son has gotten rid of all the roughness and now they only need the paint to be touched up.

Any suggestions??


Thanks so much!

This is what the wheel used to look like.

This is how it currently looks. All smooth, only needs paint touch up.

for dents and a quick turn around i like using:
http://www.yelp.com/biz/boltons-classic-wheels-gardena

VR is not bad, but just like wheel flip they take long due to high customer volume (and for good reason)!
