Wheel refinishing

My wheels have pretty bad curbage on them from previous owner, any recommendations on a place to have them refinished and possibly painted on a budget?

I recommend Shinez. Had a set done by them and am very very happy. Best prices, I called them all, Grenn, Panthers, Wheeltech.

On the topic of wheel refinishing...

May I ask how much it costs for 1 wheel to refinish it for a gash that is about 6 inches across?

Had mine done at Panther Precision Machine. Turnaround time was awesome and service was good too.

+1 for Panther if you care about quality. Greens uses green primer which you will see when you get rock chips and over spray on barrels and back side.

I think all the majors have been covered. Panthers is the one I'd recommend.

While I wasn't the customer at the time as it was the PO of my wheels that went to panthers. They fill and redrilled my wheels and you would never have the slightest idea, and made a 15-20 year old set of wheels look new. That was done 3 years ago, and they still are a solid 8/10 and get daily driven on stretched tires, and caked in shit/sap/dirt etc.

Sean 6047200631, doing working in mobile 5 tons truck. Good price and qualified work. R Mutt who owns the grey Evo 9 got his wheel refinish from Sean.

I would go to Nubrite again. They fixed some curbing I had on 20" Maya DTX with polished lip. Polished it out so it was barely noticeable.

Sorry to bump this old thread. I just wanted to find out how long it took Green's to refinish your rim, based on the damage it had, and how much it cost per wheel. Would you still recommend them? Thanks.

I went to Green's a few months back to get a slight bend fixed ($190-$200?) on my TE37 and the curbage repaired (150ish).

Came out like-new and it took about a week, no complaints.
