View Full Version : Best place to have a rim restored?

05-30-2011, 08:46 AM
I had to get out of someones way this past week....and my 7 series front drivers side rim took the full brunt of it. The outer edge of the rim looks chewed up...but no tire damage, etc.

What kind of shop would typically fix these? I spoke with my local BMW dealership---but their independent "guy" has not returned a couple of calls from me.

Try calling another dealer and also google rim repair for your area. Someone has to be around.

Look for wheel restoration shops, or shops that repair/paint wire wheels. They can usually repair alloys as well. We have one locally that does great work.
