    Best place in Nova for curb rash

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I have a small 1 inch light curb rash on one of my stockers and looking to get it back to normal. Does anyone know somewhere that is not crazy expensive but does a pretty decent work? Thanks!

    it's not in NOVA but the best place I've ever used for that sort of thing is Ye Ole Wheel Shop in Elkridge, MD. Top notch work, though I haven't been back there since maybe 2001. I believe there's a mobile guy in NOVA who will come to you. Do a search in the Mid Atlantic forums on QW, and you should be able to find some reviews of his work. There's also a DIY FAQ on AW or QW that seems fairly easy to follow if you wanted to try and fix it yourself.

    Whatever you do...do NOT use a shop called Rim Doctor. They did really shitty work on my wheels...took forever to do it, screwed up several times (used the wrong clear coat, etc). If you end up finding someone and they do a good job...please post back and let us know.

    Ye Old Wheel Shop is always highly rated...although they are known to take their sweet time. Expensive as well.

    Eweezy - did you ever get your rim repaired? I've called 3-4 places in the area and have quotes from $90-210.

    I would agree, but lowest quote I've gotten this far is $90. $95 for Rim Doctor which I've read some bad reviews on.

    Car is getting it's 5K mile service this morning at HBL and getting an estimate - I am anticipating them to be out of the ballpark as the service guy threw out typically $200/wheel.

    Do you have a body shop or detailing shop? Any idea what they typically charge?

    Good to know - I just got quoted $210 for rim repair and $450 for a new Pirelli Cinturato P7 because there is a bubble on the inside of the sidewall :(
