Is Green's still the best place to get wheels refinished?

Or is there a good place on the island now? Bit less of a hassle if there is.

My Advan Sienna Gen IIs have seen better days

PS: No "search n00b", I want the current state of affairs!

My parents just had 2 wheels straightened on their mazda and everyone they asked shipped them to greens/panther (but maybe they dont want to go with an unknown/new shop if they're loyal clients of one of the mainland shops?)

ask the dealerships in town who refinishes their wheels.
there is a Island guy for about a 100 bucks a rim and he's quick. I gave a couple of Volks to my buddy who worked at ford and he had them done, looked like new, dismounted the tire, refinsihed the wheel, and remounted/balanced the tire.

200 bucks it cost me. but I never got the name of the guy. only guy on the island though so he can't be hard to track down.

mirror image metal polishing does an excellent job in fixing up ruined wheels.

however he doesnt finish them so you will have to take it to a bodyshop to have it repainted

Right now they have a polished lip and are gold. What do you guys think I should do with them once they're all fixed up?

Chrome on chrome maybe if it's not too expensive? Does anywhere on the island even do chroming?

I'm think I'm going to sell them after, so mass appeal matters.
