wtb your cracked or bent wheels

let me know what you got, or even if they're in need of a refinishing email at montreale36@gmail.com with pics

willing to also "practice" on your wheels for free at this time, don't expect a quick turn-around I'm just getting started

I have a set of 17x8 ET35 Rondell 58s. They are straight and true but the clearcoat is flaking on three of them (one was straightened and refinished 2-3 years ago). While I don't live in Dallas, my family is in the DFW area and I get there often enough.

I want my wheel fixed pics here, it would be awesome if this rim (it's a spare so you could have it as long as you want) could be saved, I would pay you to fix the curb rash and clear coat on my other wheels....:wink:

*******UPDATE*****

I'm now able to fix/repair wheels quickly enough to launch I can do anything from cast wheels to modular multi-piece wheels, lip polishing is available bends and cracks are no problem.

I'll get some before and after pictures later but here's a couple of examples.





fyi: I work in Addison (M-F 7am-4pm) and Live in Downtown Dallas so we could set up a meeting.
