Found an excellent rim refinisher

Just though I'll share a gem of a find recently.
I had a set of Racing Dynamics rims that were badly scuffed and believe it all 4 were bent refinished and looking brand new by Rim Techniques.

The work was done so well that I also brought in my SSR GT3 rims to be refinished.

They are located at Weston Rd and Finch.
416-740-3773, speak to Nigel.
Tell him that you got his name from David with the silver M5 and did his RD and SSR rims.
And no I do not work there or get cut backs!
Just saved alot of $$$ and a happy customer.

David

uh, he posted the phone number and the name of person to talk to, so you can find out how much.

I just called him.. (8:45am) .. I'm going to head down there now to show him my winter rims, find out how much to get them straightened. I'll post back with my findings. Now to haul those dirty ass rims in the car.. bah.

BTW.. for anyone who wants to pay them a visit, their address is 2300 Finch West - Unit 66.

Just got back.

Rim straightening (not refinishing) will cost:
$100
$100
$80
$75
-----
$355 cash / no tax.

This includes tire removal / mounting new (or same) tires + balancing. It will take around 2 days for them to do it. Seems like a decent price to me... though my rims are only visibly bent on the insides.

Edit: So I went last night to drop my rims and new tires off. He changes the price... now he says it'll cost $15 per rim to put new tires on... (opposed to re-installing the tires that are already on the rim). What the hell. He said the first quote he gave me was $350 (not $355.. no complaints)... but $15-$20 per tire to mount & balance. 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?

Yeah I should be picking up my rims tomorrow. I'm going to take them back to the tire shop to get them mounted... drive a few mins, as save myself $20. Might as well.

You can have the curb rash fixed first if you need. Having them repainted + clear coated they can do as well. I'm sure it wouldn't be too expensive to do either..

Avoid at all costs

My wheel was rifinished there. Year later it started peeling.

I went back there, their response was
"Well you drive your car in winter, what do you want???"

very unprofessional!!!

Hey even brand new OEM rims will corrode if they are not washed often during the winter.

I am paranoid and wash my car and the rims almost everytime I drive it through salty roads and before parking it for the night.
It helps that I have a hand car wash 2 mins from my house.
But the rims on all my cars look brand new even after 4-5 years of winter driving.

Maintainence is the the key.
