Anyone know of a shoppe in CANADA that can refinish rims Brushed Finish???

Seems that every shoppe I message or call can do a machines finish on a flat rim but nobody can do a brushed finish . I might end up painting from carcone or whatever the name of the highly regarded by many shoppe is called but I really don't want paint. I don't want to powdercoat because I'm worried noone local can do temp control to ensure they don't weaken forged wheels.

Anyone know? Hell if you know of a refinishing shoppe just post it So I can call and ask please!!

My last option is to sell the wheels and just reorder in a different finish.

Been calling and emailing since yesterday so far not much luck. I might end up doing it by hand. Curbed can do a machined finish but only on a flat surface. I want brushed like on my Iforged.. Inside the spokes and all. If I find anything I will def post.

I've heard excellent things about http://www.wheelwizards.ca from my friends who own Z-Cars.

Might be worth trying.

Maybe contact http://www.alloywheelrepair.ca/

There in Ottawa, but have a great reputation around here. Not sure if they can do what you're asking though...
