Anyone have first hand experience with this company in refurbishing (re-painting) wheels? I have a set of 224s that were poorly powder coated, and these wheels need some help. The company says they can remove the powder coating and re-paint the wheels. Should I expect that the wheels will look like they just shipped from the factory, or something less wonderful. Thanks for your comments!!

All I know is that they'Ve been around forever, which I'd take as a very good sign. I've had wheels refinished by franchised operations that did outstanding work for relatively cheap. So I'd expect these guys will do a good job.

The "hyper silver" finish on our wheels is super common and not difficult to do properly. Not so for a wheel like the E39 M5's stock wheel in "shadow chrome" which is a 2-step process that nobody seems to get right.

I've used these guys one time...

https://www.awrswheelrepair.com/tucson

.. and the Phoenix franchisee a couple of times for curb rash. Both were mobile jobs meaning they're not dismounting the tire. In your case, to do the job right, the tires really need to come off. You might reach out to them and see if they do that type of work at their Tucson facility - assuming they even have one, it's possible they just work out of their truck(s).

They do a great job without dismounting the tire on curb rash - definitely can recommend them for that job.

A few dealerships recommended them from both NYC & Boston.
