I see the thread about halfway down the page. I have a set of wheels I want to get refinished (pictured below). $160/wheel at rimpro is a bit steep.

at Rimpro, you pay to get straight rims. at RimAndWheelWorks, you pay less and guess what? Your rims are less straight. Often, they must be taken back many times.

I called RimPro to get an estimate, $160 is for refinishing (curb rash, repaint), I'm not sure if straigtening them will cost extra or not, I have a feeling the price isn't inclusive.

WRS fixed 2 bent wheels for me. They were these great 5 spoke Mille Miglias and since they were discontinued my only choice was to repair them.

Honestly... you will get a better job done at RimPRO, In fact I was there today getting a rim straightened. I have seen far too many rims end up at RimPRO after the debocle that the other shop in town has done to them.

I'm not sure about cost, but if you get straigntening , the refinishing is included

WRS is in California so it would be my first choice if you're on this side of the country. They have machines to fix rims other companies can't which is how they saved my BBSs that were went into egg shapes from these CRAZY speed bumps that looked like basketballs cut in half. Had they been any steeper they would be bigger than curbs and I B Lined right through them. Either way... it was cheap enough... $125 for straightening and painting. I sold that car and went bacl to have them paint my tacomas rims glossy black... check em out!

Nice '85. I think I'm jealous!

Those BBS wheels (mine were 390mm) looked great on my '83 533i too, until a 54' bigrig backed over it!

Keep it foreva!

I have used both RimPro and Rim & Wheel Works
Both have produced excellent results for me and have had great service.
Both had the wheels ready when promised.
RimPro refinished my E36 LTW forged alloys, and R&WW refinshed my (ex)325iX basket-weaves

I have read about concerns regarding heating the wheels at R&WW, but I have had no problems.
