Refinishing Rims

Just wondering if there is a shop in GTA that does rim refresh/repair and how much I'm looking at for 18"..
Any suggestions??

Any powdercoating paint shop can paint your rims. It could be pretty cheap if they're adding it to a set they're already doing. Otherwise last time I looked refinishing was $100+ per wheel.

I just masked my tires off and sprayed them myself. Fixed the curb rash with some filler and sanding.

Rim refinishing is like bodywork, every single case is different. Nobody can give you an exact price (accurately). Be very careful who does the job, I've seen plenty of horror stories. I use Union Rim Repair, for 10+ sets so far and they do a GREAT job! Highly recommended. Other places paint rims without taking the valve stems out! lol

I use Mike at Brightside Customs in Scarborough. He's part of the Toronto Mini Club, a big time car enthusiast and a provides a great quality service. He's in the Eglinton and Victoria Park area.

I think the last set of 18" I had done by him was $120-$130 a rim for this shade of high gloss bronze metallic. Costs is dependent on the wheel size and the finish you want. Also agree with the above. Every case is different and make sure you go to someone that does good work. It's NOT always "you get what you pay for" nowadays. Sometimes the work is shit even though there's nothing wrong with the quality of big money you paid.
