Hmm? I'd have to see that up close to decide whether or not I was really interested in it.

dunno if u can tell by this pic, but there is a little rainbow effect on the lip

You have to have the sun hit the rim at the right angle.

Unhappy Need help with wheel repair...

I managed to "modify" one of my rear wheels yesterday with a nasty curb rash while exiting a really bad driveway (cut it too close).
Has anybody in So. Cal had any personal experience with a wheel repair shop that can help with this kind of repair? Basically, I want to get my wheels as nice as possible including polishing the lips. I would really appreciate any references anyone might have! Thanks

Default Volcano Polishing

My wife just rolled a lip on my wheels a couple of weeks ago. It was so bad that I really thought I was going to have to buy a new wheel....yes, that bad. Put it this way, it literally rolled over to where it was the size of a rolled taco/taquito. It was 4-5 inches wide and rolled so bad you could see the bead where the tire meets the rim. Autofashion in San Diego referred me to these guys. They charged me $60 for what would have been $1,080 for one wheel, if I had to replace. The job was so good that I paid doubled what they charged, and they had it done in 3-4 business days. I went to Discount Tire to get the tire mounted, and after telling them the story, they said that Volcano did such a good job that it needed very little balancing.

Ask for John. When you call, do me a favor and tell him that Rex referred you. I was so happy with the work, I promised to spread the word to anyone that needed their help. I'd like them to know I kept my word.

If you like, PM me your email address, and I can send you some before and after pics. Let me know if you have any other questions. I know what you're going through and I understand. Hahahaa! Good Luck.

Yeah, man I could not believe it. I told them I'd double their price if I liked the job, I actually would have tripled it, but the wife said i was getting too generous. In this case for $60 I didn't get what I paid for...I got much more!

Again, the guys at Autofashion referred me to them. I could be wrong, but I think they even worked on the wheels on this car too:

THANK YOU, REX!
I will check them out and I will certainly let them know about your recommendation. If they can take care of my problem too, I will also post pics and recommend here on CL too. I will send you a PM as you suggested...
