Where to get wheels refinished?

I have a set of RH ZW3 Technic 18" wheels that have been sitting in a storage room for about 5-6 years. Where in Texas or anywhere else can I send these to get refinished? The only difference between mine and the ones below is that mine have the face painted jet black.

For background, they were in New England weather for a few years, so you can imagine the abuse that they took. . .

Thanks for reading.

Thanks for this. I did try the last one. . .e-mailed the local company, but they never got back to me. I guess I'll ship these off to one of the other ones you mentioned. Thanks again.

Call a few local Dealerships. They usually have the contact info on local wheel re-finishers that will come to you. You really only need to ship wheels out if they are structurally damaged or out of round. Wheel re-finishers can sand and bondo paint and polish the lips and respray the wheels. Some can do it while a tire is mounted as well (saving you money). I got quoted almost $75 bucks a wheel for some curbed and chipped 68's but it was cheaper then shipping. I decided to invest that money in new wheels but if you have a nice set of aftermarkets then look into it.

Thanks for recommendation. Just put this in my planner to call dealership on Monday. They better give a good recommendation, since my wife just bought a 328i from them last week!

yeah, call the dealer.

My local dealer will take the car and dismount it from the car and hand it over to one of the mobile refinishing trucks that they hire. $100 per wheel, paid to the dealer.
