Wheel repair shops?
« on: September 13, 2004, 09:38:02 AM »
Anyone know of a decent local shop to get an estimate for wheel curbish repair?  I'm seriously looking at Dave's wheels for sale since I found a decent deal on 18" rubber.  I just wondered how much it might take to fix the little bit of curb rash on one or two wheels.

Thanks
Rob

lots of the Audi world folks recommend a place in Denver called Woody's.  On santa fe I believe.

Rob,
Keep in mind you can buy a new 18" Artic for $150.  Of course, you'd have to pay shipping, too.

On another note, I'm going to pick up my new golf clubs in a few minutes.  Woot woot!  =D

I had my 19's fixed and refinished at Spec Wheels in Commerce City (303.853.9978), but I don't really reccommed them. They are very nice people and were great to deal with, but after having the wheels a year, the finish isn't holding up very well. :-(

I know for a fact that Woody's does polishing and refinishing on those lips. (303.936.0232) They are located at 2225 S. Platte River Drive West...

You're probably looking at about $100 per wheel to fix, anywhere you go though. That's just the standard rate these days... Hopefully it will be less, but ...

Pat does have a vaild point. You can get a new wheel for only $150... just something to think about.

I agree with the new price per wheel.  You could use the scuffed for a spare incase the event of another getting damaged.  Just my $.02.
If it ain't broke, take it apart and fix it!

I remember seeing a place next to Meadow Creek Tire (on Broadway north of the city), it's called the Wheel Exchange and they do repairs/refinishing of OEM and aftermarket wheels.  
I don't know if they are good or not.
