Precision or Wheelfix??

I need to get one of my wheels fixed..

Precision quoted me $275+tax

Wheelfix quoted me $200+tax free delivery/pick up

Which one should i go? And which one is more reliable? Precision kinda bump up the price and cant go any lower after seeing my rims in person

reviews of both are in the Wheels & Tires section.

Sickfinga & Myself have had bad experiences with Precision.. other members have nothing but praise to say. Do a search.

Wheelfix ruined MarkD's forged M-System rim a while back. They seem to be fine with cast wheels though, I had a BBS RX's repaired and they did a perfect job.
