We use Keystone Automotive, they have done a real nice job refinishing and straightening wheel not cheap, however they do good work.

jbeurotech, is this rim fixable? I just wanted to make sure it is before buying it because the company no longer are making them.

this rim has a bend and its about a 7 inch curb rash.

Wow, that one's got a good bend on it. I've seen worse get fixed, but I don't know if it'll get fixed completely. You may wind up with a slightly flat spot on the rim. It'll all depend on the wheel material and the resources of the wheel repair service. No matter which way you go, wheel repair is expensive. I would recommend going and getting an estimate before doing the work. If you have to, take the picture to a repair business and show them and ask them if they might be able to do it. It all depends on the stability of the bead channel or lip. This is all from what I have observed from a wheel repair company we use at Maserati.
