FML: OEM Wheel Refinishing

So, I don't even know HOW I did it, but I managed to scrape both of my right side wheels.
One has curb rash on 1/2 of the wheel, and the rear has 1/3 of the wheel.

I want to get them re-finished over the winter months (once my winters go on).

I've contacted:
Carcone's @ 125/wheel (240 if they are hypersilver which they aren't afaik)
Precision Rim Repair @ 125/wheel ( around 200 if they are hyper silver)

Which one would be a better choice?
Any other Place suggestions?
All my wheels were in 9.8/10 Shape before this stupidity of mine. I am looking to get this done in the next couple of months.

do not use precision. They did a terrible job on mine, they had to redo it twice and I'm still not happy with the results.

Maybe contact the $tealership (or if you know an SA) and ask who they use to work on the CPOs.

I already gave him that info but he was not satisfied they could do the job.

(Note there are two threads with the same title and this is the very small one with almost no responses)

Here is the other:

I'n not sure why this thread is even here.
