Default Gram Lights 57F 17x8.5 Bronze wheel repair Help

So I have a set of 57F wheels that are colored bronze. I love the wheels but I slid the car into the curb on a rainy night. I managed to get a pretty good size dent into the two drivers wheels along with some curb rash but the tire still held air and still is (this happen in October before i put the winter wheels on). I got them replaced the next day (put the winter wheels and tires on) and the guys at discount tire said there shouldn't be any reason why they shouldn't be able to be repaired. Is there any place that is recommend that could repair the wheels? The wheels are forged, does that matter in getting them repaired? The big issue i'm worried about is with them being Bronze in color i want to make sure i send them some where that can match that color. I emailed Tire Rack to see if they recommend anyone one but i never got a reply.

Any help would be great.

edit: I posted this on the general thread but then a moderator decided that i had to post it in here instead and looked my other post. I'm willing to ship the wheels some place out of state that'll do a good job, doesn't have to be a local shop

thanks for getting back to me guys. From those of you who have had them work on your wheels, did their prices seem reasonable?
