Default Wheel Repair Facilities.... any reviews/hookups?

Ok I need to get one of my wheels fixed, and I am looking at something local. So far I found

Wheels America
http://www.fixrim.com/
$129 + 20 mount & balancing
located in Santa Fe Springs (5mins from my house)
1 day turn around

anywhere else?? (yes I searched) looking for new results.. and there was nothing for Wheels America... is there anything else thats local, does good work, and is not too expensive, with fast turn around time??? Let me know...

Whats up bro? Hey I have a couple places you can go to. Try Mag masters in Santa Ana (714) 541-9777 or MHK wheel repair in Placetia.

I've used WRS in Sant Ana off of edinger. Good work, owner acts like a ****. Around 100-120 for repairs with mount and balance.

how much would it cost to polish a small scratch on a wheel? I feel bad I scratched my friends wheel and I can't afford to replace the whole wheel ( I think its a $2500 wheel ) but I would like at least get it polished out. You can barely feel the rubbed area, but you can definitely see where its scratched.

F360 Spider. I apexed a corner to closely and the thing didn't kick the back end out like I had expected. Needed much more throttle to break the 355's loose apprently.

I barely grazed the edge of the wheel. but I knew I was in trouble when the curb kicked the back end out for me.

how bad's the damage? i had a 2" long by 1/8" deep bend (very slight, no crack) straightened by Rainbow Polishing in El Monte for $35. It was on the inside of the wheel, so i touched up the paint myself.

I remember reading about a place called Tru Wheel in N. Hollywood from another thread. The guy had an older set of Volks that he had repaired and he seemed pretty happy with the results.
