Local wheel repair shop?

Hi,

The g/f curbed up one of my rims and I'm looking for a local shop that can fix the curbing. It's not too bad - a total of 4-5 inches worth in 3 spots - so it's definitely fixable.

Any suggestions for a local shop? If not local, any recs for a shop in Vancouver?

thanks,

Look up mirror image metal polishing. I don't have their number on hand.

Stay away from the mobile truck repair guy. Heard and seen horrible wheel repairs from that truck.

See if Richard at mirror image can do it. If he can't, then check out green's automotive in Richmond. They are expensive, but every wheel I've had fix there, I can never tell it was damaged.
