Cheaper and closer, thanks for posting. I'll try them next time. And, there will be a next time.

FWIW, Quite a few small wheel and tire shops that advertise wheel repair in Socal, send them to Wheels America...

I use Wheels America too. 24 Hour turnaround. If the wheels are slightly tweaked, they'll straighten them (Not recommended for track wheels), probably any wheels for that matter.

I box up the wheels and ship them UPS to Wheels America. They do their magic, and get them back to me the following day, with prepaid UPS. They refinish to factory, and refinish the barrels too.

Wheel Enhancement is an incredible store with great service and competitive prices. I had them rebuild some Fikse 3 piece wheels for me last Fall, flawless. Dave Martin is very knowledgable.

It was so simple, send them in for evaluation, looking to being certain they are straight and true. If any barrels are tweeted, they'll replace them. Also had new retaining bolts installed and torqued to factory specs. These wheels are now in the possession of another Renlister. Sold my 993 and they had to go.

No doubt they are a great shop, but at $275 vs. $125-$145 per wheel elsewhere, their pricing is far from competitive

For $150 are you getting them powdercoated or painted like Original? There is a price difference?

You pay the freight one way, they ship it back at their cost, 24 hours turnaround, barrels refinished to new, the fakers also refinished to new. Freight from LA to Buena Park, please....$129 a wheel I believe.
