Default picked up a set of factory BBS forged 02-03

I got a set of these wheels and I have read that they're fairly rare due to the cost when they were new. They're in good shape with some slight curbage and BBS center caps included. I plan on repainting or powdercoating them. Any recommendations for shops in CT?
I found these places

http://www.wallingfordwheels.com/

CT wheel repair is over $100 per wheel but he guarantees the work and says it will look like new.

I decided to go with ctwheelrepair.
Jay, the owner seems to know his stuff.
I'm not doing the polished edge because I don't like it.

Got the wheels yesterday and they look great.
Since it's the wife's car, she wanted all seasons so I got a new set of Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS tires. I have these on my B7 S4 and they are excellent. Also since the wheels are only 7in wide I opted for the 215/45 not 225/45.
