I did look into it and I would ultimately prefer refurbing them than buying unknown refurbs. Both places I asked for quotes from (neither of the ones you named) said it would be better to replace them. Of course that was before they attempted to find them. Both ended up giving me quotes of over $200 + tire mount and dismount charges on top each. So more than the 50 pounds Mike always seems to get them done for. One of the places I contacted is near my office in Chantilly and I may end up going with them.Have you considered having your wheels repaired? I honestly did not know that was an option until I started watching Wheeler Dealers some years ago. Anyway, I would love to know if somebody has a good experience, because I do have some wheels with curb rash that I would like to fix. I just don't have a repair shop I trust, but these shops seem to have good reviews:
Ye Ole Wheel Shop
Kwicksilver in Fairfax
I also just emailed Kwicksilver for a quote. Thanks for the heads up on them.
