Re-finishing Wheels Shop

Does anyone have experience with a shop that would be willing to refinish 3 piece wheels? I am looking to refinish my OZ Futuras and need a good shop that knows what they are doing.

Thanks for any info.

An auto body or custom car shop maybe? Anyplace that woukd use a chemical stripper would be best prob, I did my own so I don't have any real suggestions but, if their a real lightweight wheel ied prob try any stay away from sandblasting

I've had a horrible experience with Precision. Hyper Silver CSL refinishing after minor curb rash. The first time they did it, it came out too dark. Thankfully they took it back after some bickering and redid it. Colour came out better, still not 100% match, but close enough that it's fairly difficult to tell. One year later however, the pain started to chip right off the wheel.

Personally, I'd look elsewhere.

Do you know if they sprayed or powdercoated?

In their defense hyper silver is hard to match from what I've heard.

Unless you can specify a specific paint code, any color is hard to match.
