3 piece wheel questions

I'm not sure where to place this post but I'd assume the turbo section fits best. I have a customer with a 3.6 Turbo that has the original Speedline 3 piece wheels. Unfortunately, all four wheels are leaking air at the rimlocks and need to be torn down and resealed. They leakdown ~5-8psi per day until flat.

I'm curious to know if the Speedlines require hoop heating to remove the center sections, or if they pop apart like other 3 piece wheels after all the rim bolts are removed? I only ask because if it's the later of the two, I have the capabilities to dismantle, reseal, and balance the rims in-house. If not they must be sent out.

Second......what recommendations do we have here for repairing such 3 piece wheels. I have a full set of Champion Racing 3 piece wheels for my own car that I need 2 of the wheel hoops straightened(small pothole bends) and would like a very good reputable shop to complete such work.

Appreciate the info!
