  1. #1 Question Wheel Refinishing - Who can do it? Northern MA / Southern NH 
    Who is the best to work with? Any Yuppie Discounts available?

    Called Ace Performance but Tom is no longer there.

    This is for my GF audi A4.

    I should consider rim conversion so I can fit steel rims from an old crown vic. Will need one rim primer grey, another taxi yellow last two I am up for recommendations.

    I am not a 14 year old girl, but I play one on the internet.

    Who was the first person to look at a cow and say 'I don't know what these dangly things are, but I am going to yank on them and drink whatever comes out.'

    The disease runs deep, relapses often, not looking for a cure, just another sick bastard to share it with.

    just go to rim pro, its the same place baer takes them, theres no point giving them to baer and then waiting while they sit on the floor of his shop until he takes them to rim pro, may as well just give them straight to rim pro

    ive used rim pro many times, they do a very good job

    I think it depends on what you are having done exactly, but yes they can blast the finish off, straiten, balance and re-finish.

    my old work eurolines, they sand blasted them before painting (assuming it was sand blasting), then painted. i went from a machined silver to hyper silver. finished product was awesome.

    I called RimPro a couple of weeks ago to inquire about refinishing a chipped wheel. They never got back to me so I reached out to a couple of other shops. I ended up going to Bow, NH and worked with Chris at Sr. Powdercoating. He did a great job at repairing the chip and refinishing the wheel and his prices are reasonable. Give him a call, he always picks up the phone and is very easy to work with.
