Excellent Job, great price!

Is welding and straightening available? I have a deep six with a crack in the lip that I would like to return to service, if only as a spare.

How's does your work compare to al Reed? He does wheels for 160

Quick question as its one of benifits in using your service.
You mentioned that you used additional coats of anodizing. How many vs other business.
Thanks

Do you also do the RSR finish that is a bit more frosted looking and little less of a gloss finish?

We can straighten and weld within reason. If welding is extensive the anodizing can be slightly off color. If only used as spare it should not be a problem.

I know Al well and Al does good work. If you compare the product side by side you can see a difference though it is not great. We have the advantage of actually answering phone calls and emails and finishing the wheels much much faster. You will actually get your wheels back before your kids take your keys away from you and put you in a home. :)

Can you please answer my question above regarding anodizing?
Thanks

Actually I did not say "more coats". The anodizing can be adjusted to a degree. Thinner anodizing results in a very minor striation of finish on the paddles. Not particularly noticeable when the wheel is on the car but noticeable when viewed next to another wheel.

Yes. I'll post a photo when time permits.

Are you saying that for $200 you can make this look new?
It will only be used a a spare, so it won't get much, if any road use.

Nice wheel. I see a little curb rash at 4:00 o'clock, otherwise it is almost there. We can do that one for only thirty dollars since it just needs a little touch up.

gtc 10-23-2015 02:11 PM

^^^ lol

Thanks for the info on repairs. I'll see if i can find some photos to discuss further.

0396 10-23-2015 02:27 PM

Bryon,
Very interesting question. If the OP can do it, its going to be the buzz on this forum

Actually, no rash, that was an NIB wheel from a garage fire. :D
