Default Phoenix: Wheel repair recommendations in the area?

Hi all,

I checked the threads of interest, and didn't see anything that fit the bill and did the requisite searches ("wheel repair", etc.).

I accidentally curbed one of my Volks last week, and now I have a nice chunky white pattern that stretches about 6 inches along the outer lip. It's not that bad (thankfully, that's all that got scratched), but man, is it an eye sore.

I was wondering if anyone could recommend a quality wheel repair shop in the area? I live in the central Phoenix area, so anything within 30 miles would be OK. Thanks in advance for your feedback.

-Mike

I'd give you a recommendation but i got my wheel damage in sacramento. Sorry bud.

Here is some helpful advise, never run over a rolling driveshaft on the highway going 80mph.....

Check out rimpro.com and nuwheel.com. I know that Nu Wheel lists their address as Tucson, but they have a place up here too.

Thanks a lot for the recommendations -- I'll check both services out. I know it's expensive to fix and refinish a wheel, but it sure beats having to buy a new one of these suckers. Have a good one.

I've used rimpro before and can attest to the good quality.

They only charged me $ 90 to fix a taco'ed alloy rim that wouldn't hold air.

After they fixed it, I could NOT even tell where the damage was !
