Repairing can be a bit dangerous

for a cracked/damaged wheel al's hubcap is really good I've used him in the past and hes very straight forward wont sell you a dream if its unrepairable he will tell you and send you on your way.

i've used this place a few times for my rim issues. the guys are very knowledgeable and a lot of businesses actually send them rims for repair.


one of my rims was bent, but the imbalance would never show up in balancing machines. these guys can very precisely determine what's wrong. turned out i had a bent rim and my tire was defective with a static imbalance so i ended up getting a warranty replacement tire. on another occasion, i cracked one of my racing dynamics 3 pc rims (forced me to get a different set of rims b/c replacing it would have set me back over $1200 for just 1 rim). unfortunately they couldn't fix it b/c the crack went in 2 directions and it needed a new "cylinder" with a particular number of rivets which i couldn't find anywhere.

He refinished my stock 19" that had a ton of curb rash when I bought the car, he did really good work and was priced fair

+1 They just repaired a wheel on my benz a few days ago. It took them no time to get it done. Their alignments are near perfect as well.

I used to go to Al's, and yes Im from Westchester, until Al got his permanent man period. Now I go to Dunn Sport and Im very happy :thumbup:

I have a connect at elite powdercoating I can talk to, I got a wheel fixed at als hubcaps a few years ago and he charegd me 125 to just fix the crack, I got another wheel that had 3 cracks in it and was curbed to death, elite fully refinished the wheel and painted it you couldnt even tell the crack was there for 115.

^^^ you fixed my wheel about 2 months ago and refinished it, Alot of the paint, powdercoat, whatever you refinished it with is all coming off and looks like crap

Intrack Tires is where i take my rims too in queens, but they are so stacked up, i went there and they have about 35 sets of rims to repair and powdercoat. So worth every penny.
