Repair vs reassembly perhaps?

HIGH RES PICS ARE DEMANDED

Really? I'm going to make a few phone calls either tonight or tomorrow to people that I know who actually work for Lamborghini Toronto and Ferrari Maserati of Ontario and verify this. I'm not calling you a liar, I just have a very difficult time believing that Precision is contracted by these dealers.

I know for a fact that Carcone's deals with LOTS of dealerships in the GTA in high volume. Hell, a few local Honda/Lexus dealers use them. How do I know this? Because the dealerships' service advisors themselves told me they send out their wheels to Carcone's. They have a massive warehouse up in Aurora (their head office) to handle their large customer base, too.

Allow me to explain: I spent $700 for repairing two severely bent Volks; even though my front only had one bend, whereas my rear was bloody MANGLED and even still Ric charged me $300 each which doesn't make any sense considering how much more work was involved for the rear. Add another $150 to repair my re-cracked rear through Rim Techniques and we're now at $850. You're right though: I added wrong. But this isn't factoring in the mounting/dismounting bullshit I had to go through for my ripped 215/35/19 AND buying a replacement set of fronts thereafter.

You can figure it out. It added up to well over a thousand bucks in the end once everything is accounted for.

FWIW, I'm glad you had a good experience with using Precision Rim ****. At least you are happy with your end result.

I merely posted my lengthy experience with their shop to warn others that they do make some pretty serious mistakes and then don't take full responsibility for their actions - which is absolute BS.

Please follow through.....I'm very interested to know where Lambo & Ferrari send their rims...I hear Carcone's does not do 2/3 piece rims.

I've used Carcone's in the past. Several times as a matter of fact. Had them work on my multi-piece Volk's for the Mazda with zero problems. I would go back to Carcone's again. They are a little far, but in the absence of a highly rated outfit in/near the GTA, I don't mind. YMMV

EDIT: BTW Spoony, good looking wheels, regardless of who did the work!

i can't believe all this happened to you and Stephanie...i took my rims to Ric two times and it came back on time and with no problems at all.

so after all this happened, did you show him proof that he took off too much metal on the rims? i mean he should at least give you some money back or do something to make it up? same for Stephanie's situation.

I know! Just bad luck I guess... I mean, it was SUCH an easy job! (Guess that's what I get for being too particular with my car! lol)

I fought tooth and nail with them and they finally reimbursed me $300.00 cash.. But since I had to replace 2 tires and will have to replace the rim (if the claim I made against the tow truck doesn't work out) I'm still out about $600.00!!

Albeit, I was able to recoup the money lost for the $425.00 tow through CAA who comped me for it... CAA Plus FTMFW

But still! $600.00 in the hole for a $100.00 basic lip refinish!! SO agitating!!

...Anuk was not as fortunate, but I'll let him share his Precision piss-off...

Are these the same LE37s that were sold in the classifieds?
