Default Curb Rash Fix Northern NJ

Any recommendations on a shop for fixing curb rash (yes on all 4 wheels) in Northern NJ.

Car is 15 TTS Cab (see avatar at left) and it has the center-lock TTS wheels that the car came with.

I was not as careful as I should have been when I first got the car 3 years ago and played "let's find the apex of this corner" a bit too often. All 4 wheels have some degree of curb rash on them, not horrible, but def noticeable, to me anyway.

I am probably going to buy out the lease on this car soon and would like to bring the wheels back to (or close to) their original condition.

Not sure if I'm posting this in the correct forum on RL, but it is a TTS and any help finding the right shop in Northern NJ/Southern NY State would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions...

Not in Northern NJ but if you don't mind a trip to NY, these guys are amongst the best. Did great work on the CL wheels for my 997.2TTS. Check them out on YouTube and also vouched by Larry Kosila (AMMO). Good luck.

We have a vendor we work with that does an excellent, high quality job. It likely they will also need straightened so its important to have a vendor who can also do that as well as refinish.

The other thing to consider is that it likely takes minimum of 4-5 days to turn the wheels around, so you need to be able to take all 4 wheels off the car, have the tires stripped from them before they are sent out. Obviously the reverse needs to happen to go back on the car. You may just want to take it to a shop who can do the job end to end for you reducing the hassle and workload.

This is something we do several times a year at Aspen for our customers.

Thanks M. Yeah, that seems like a hassle, but when I am ready, I will get back to you.

Hope you are doing well and feeling good.

Thanks....
