So an additional $60.. bah.

Shimajer.. refinishing can include repainting. If your rim has curb rash, gashes, or needs to be repainted.. this is called "Refinishing". I didn't bother refinishing since these are my winter rims.. I really don't care about the curb rash. I just want them straight.
wow, thats bullshit, wats the difference between installin new tires and old ones?

anyhow, i think its still a good price, since tax is included.

another question: let say i just want to get my rims powdercoat to another colour, let say shadow gunmetal.. so basically i dont need to refinish my rims right? becasue i am painting them with another colour right? or do I still need to get them to fix the curb rash first?
