    Wheel repair in Sacramento?

    I need to...erase...some curb rash my wife brought home. Pretty good gouge in the lip of a M68 rear wheel!

    Re: Wheel repair in Sacramento?

    IMHO there are two options depending on your budget and quality needs. The cheapest and easiest method is to contact and company like Colrs On Parade that have mobile vans that can come to you or any local dealer (you will see them in the back lots of Niello, Van Houson, Sac Jaguar, etc.) and they can do repairs on the car. They simply use a Dremel or similar tool to smooth out the area, mask the tire, and srapy the color then clear coat on the wheel. Depending on the extent of the damage, this can look pretty good. A more perfectionist way of doing it is to have the wheel remove from the vehicle, have the tire dismounted, and have a professional wheel refinisher such as Weidman Wheels (they are located up north a bit but have a weekly pickup and delivery to Sacramento) refinish the wheel. The downside to this method is the extra added cost and the time without your wheel. Hope this helps.

    My problem is....

    ..my wife actually took a good chunk out of the lip with a hard curb scrape; it will take more than a once over with a dremel. Need to have some metal built up back on the lip. Sending the wheel out is no problem as they are my summer tires and are just sitting in the shed right now.

    Try Precision Wheel on Fulton & Cottage.

    I had a chat w/one of the guys there who said they do wheel repair work. He's related to a good friend, so I assume he wasn't giving me any BS.

    I think I have the number you're looking for...I called them this morning and they have really reasonable prices...I was hoping to find someone local though. The number is 800-928-6746, they're only open M-F, 8-5
