Refinishing OEM wheels

2 wheels have some rashes on the outer lips, how do I get them fixed where I get the same finish? Any suggestions?

Try Wheels America or another wheel refinishing shop in your area. Google is your friend.

Over the years I have used local wheel refinishers with excellent results - meaning that you can't detect the repair. In the past 10 years the charges have gone from about $75 per wheel to about $150 per wheel depending on the severity of the damage. Some of these repair vendors will come to your location. An internet search should turn up some in your area. Good luck!

Yes...It's my understanding that the lips are clear coated but I'm a newbie so I may be wrong...LOL.

I'm in the same boat. I need to get all my wheels refinished as well and will be looking for someone I can trust to do a proper job in my area.

Not to hijack the thread but if anyone has a suggestion for the San Fernando Valley / Los Angeles area in So Cal please let me know.

Thank you...!

I paid about $860 to have a set of E55 Monoblocks refinished. They looked close to new when done. The wheels were bent, had a lot of curb rash and the finish was in horrible shape when I bought them.

Done by this place. They don't accept credit cards so it's cash or check only: Dropped them off without an appt, had them back 2 days later. Price included dismounting/mounting/balancing tires. https://www.yelp.com/biz/rite-way-wi...s-walnut-creek

Mine were done with a silver powder coated face and polished lips. Zero miles on them after putting them on at my friend's shop.

I had my set refinished for 1k. There perfect and worth it. Nothing looks better than a nice clean set of monoblocks.
