I just picked up 2 rims I dropped off yesterday. My rims were actually done in THREE hours, so I could have picked them up yesterday. Can you believe that? I think their normal turnaround time is 1-2 days. I had some major curbage on both rims. From what I can tell, they did a good job, and they only charged me $25/rim. It doesn't get any better than that!!

(Just a tip, you need to actually bring in the rims for an estimate. Over the phone, they might give you a higher quote.)

Oh, just FYI, it's a small shop, so don't expect some huge wheel shop. There are a few spots where you can park along Western.
WTF? only $25???? wow, i'll check them out next time!

yeah the rims came out pretty nicely. just FYI, i think they're only open tuesday-saturday. other .NET members have used them before as well...so i can't take credit for finding them. i believe alexus first told me about them...

I just called Bolton's and they quoted me $55 to repair a cracked rim!!! That's insane!!! Well, I guess I have no need to drive all the way down to Anaheim (MagMasters) now. I just want to get more familiar with the quality of their work. The gent on the phone said they give a 3 month warranty on their work. Is that a decent warranty? Rim guru's please chime in...

you could check out their shop if you're not sure. it's really a bare bones kind of shop. they simply fix rims, tons of rims. it's a tiny shop, and they do the repair right there in the back of the store. the guys who fix the rims also answer the phone at times.

they were great with my rims. i had major curb rash on 1 rim (lip of the rim), and minor curb rash on the lip of the other rim. you can see the brush strokes of where they did the repair (thanks for pointing that out, irv! heehee), but it's not very noticeable. at least it's not very noticeable to me, esp since once the tires are on, you won't really be able to see it.

one other thing, they do NOT remove tires there, so you'll have to get your tires dismounted somewhere else first, before dropping off your rims.

that sux that you see brush strokes. if they were cutting it that close to see brush strokes, they should have taken apart the rim and done it correctly. only what.... $25-50 more and you get a perfect rim back with no brushes. but hey, if you can't notice it, then it's cool. Me, i'm very picky.

either way , $25 for that kind of work is still an excellent price.

Dang! Another aspect I have to deal with. It's not like I can fit hella rims in my backseat. I can barely fit one 19 inch rims in my car and I have 2 that need to be fixed. Lol. Oh well, can't be picky when saving money...

Dam luckly I didnt go that day and make the 40 minute drive. I guess I'll wait since I am picky, I do not want to lose the polish shine that the JDM wheels come with. I have heard that no shop in the US can bring them up to par with like the JDM polish.

Sup E.... so the brush strokes that are on the rim are hidden behind the tires edge?

I'm constantly afraid when Parking b/c I dont want to scratch my lip.... I know the day will come though so I'd like to be ready to go to a shop and repair *** as soon as it happens.


btw I just spanked a 94-98ish Honda Accord coupe in my KIA SEdona Van w/ 9ppl inside...... WoOt WoOot Kia Racing OwnZ Joooz!!!

Lol, now I've heard it ALL

JDM polish? ha ha ha ha ha...."would you like very shiny or HELLUVA shiny?" lol. I'll just have them use some US spec stuff and make sure no one gets closer than 3 inches away from my rims I figure at 3 inches away you can't tell what country the polish came from!

lol... i know it sounds funny, but the JDM polish has a rainbow like reflection when the light hits it at certain angles. Well its better to see in person, cant really describe it.
