I've had my 2005 M3 about a year. Yesterday I used a little too much
right foot and too little restraint (of course the traction control
was off) and the next thing I knew I was sideways at 60 mph with the
rear wheels on a gravel shoulder.
The wheels are BBS RGR bright silver painted finish. It's surprising
how many little chips you can get in such a short time. I wish I
would have had the stock wheels on at the time because I like the
Does anyone know of a good place to get wheels refinished?
Wiht a last name of Cranium it would seem you might have the sense to
tell people WHERE YOU ARE when asking where to get wheels refinished.
But - hey - there's this little place near me that does really good
work. Why not go there?
Well, since you asked, I'm at home.
When I asked if anyone knew of a good place to get wheels refinished I
expected they would share it with the group. Location is not
important there are businesses like UPS that ship anywhere.
Where's that trollmeter when you need it?
If the story is true, the OP should buy a 1000 cc sport bike, which
would provide greater acceleration and have the tendency to remove him
from the gene pool sooner.
Well, in that case, I know of a great place in Nan King China. Do you
want to ship your (heavy) wheels back and forth to that shop?
You need to at least say what continent you are on... ;-)
Now, to answer your question, since you are obviously on the North
As you easily figured out I do live in North America. To be more
I googled wheel repair and found many hits too. Have you done
business with either of the two you singled out?

No, I have not (yet), but have heard good things about both places from
other people that have. I do have a set of 16" SAAB wheels that I am
thinking of getting straightened and refinished. More likely I'll just
trade them in for a set that's already been finished.
Richard Cranium, no offense to you, but this is how we normally refer
to someone in a mixed environment when we want to call them Dick Head.
Since this could possibly be a serious question, your location is
relavent as I doubt you want to ship the wheels to Germany if you're
in South Dakota...
No offense taken. I would hope that you didn't think that was my real
name. I don't believe Psycho is yours, but you never know.
Yes this is a serious question. I live in Illinois. I doubt there
would be an excellent shop right in my back yard but you never know.
I was pretty sure that this wasn't your real name. Psycho is
actually a nick name I picked up in the Air Force. Best of luck with
those wheels. I'm sure you'll be aesier on them in the future :)
