Rim refinishing
 
Quick question,
Has anyone heard of the guy in Kitchener that will refinish your rims and paint them for like $200? I dont recall what his shop was called, and I dont expect anyone from the GTA to know, thought I would give it a try :s.
But if anyone knows of anywhere else that does cheap refinishing, im all ears!!, thanks again.

I'd be curious to know too... I also need to have some refinishing done...

The only place I know of is Rim Doctor, but that place is very expensive, excellent work, but very pricey...

Jeff at century powder coating. I've spoken with him in person a few times about refinishing rims and he's pretty good because he doesn't mind telling you how to do it yourself. I say this because I went to him to see what it would cost to strip a set of basketweave rims.

If the rims you want to refinish are BMW rims it will probably cost ~$200 to have the rims prepped and then ~$150 to powder coat all 4 if you use a common colour. If you want a custom colour it will cost more. He will tell you that BMW uses a self leveling primer on their wheels to fill in pits due to the casting process and that it's more of a bitch to prep those rims. I know this first hand because I went to strip one of my basketweaves, the paint came off like nothing using the stripper but there was 3 layers of primer and it was a bitch to get them off. Needless to say I just decided to sand the other 3 rims.
