Good Rim Repair Shop In Toronto?



I was driving my E63 last night and hit a ****in pothole last night going south on Allen rd.

Pretty ****in pissed.

I need to get one of the front rims repaired and need a good reputable rim repair shop.

Let me know if u guys know of one and what am I looking at cost wise. Its a very small dent. I had to look at it 3 times to find the dent.

Thanks guys

I need to send one of my LTW's out too, let me know how it turns out. I found a small dent in the inner barrel Can they fix it without refinishing because I find that the BMW factory clear-coat on the rim is the best.

Carcones couldn't fix the rim so i sent it to rim techniques at finch and weston. I was referred to them and they do some high end car wheels. Its done pretty good but i still feel a bit of vibration at speeds of 130 k/ph.

I have to locate a new or used original rim.

For all intents and purposes, rims cannot be repaired.

I've had bad experiences with:
Precision
Carcone (more than once, i'm an idiot)

no experience with rim techniques

I'm about to get my 16" Alpina's done. There's another rim repair thread somewhere here -- after reading it I looked into Quy (Brampton) and Union Rim Repair (Yorkdale area). I'm about to pull the trigger with Union. Quy's website is cool - he has a great video showing his process. However he was a bit unenthusiastic about tire removal and 2 colour powder coating, which I need.

^^so you're going to pay someone 1/2 of what your rim is worth to "fix" it, but he can't take a tire off? Comon man, i can take a tire off a rim, and as some people would say, "i'm a ****ing moron!"

Seriously. Instead you'd rather bump a year old thread and wait for a reply?

Horrible experiences with Precision as I've stated in another popular rim repair thread. Never tried Carcone's though they *seem* to be the most reputable. Rim Techniques did really good work.
