They said that sending them back to HRE would not be an option and if anything they would send out the wheels to their own powdercoater/do it in-house (wasn't clear on this point). Which is a bunch of bs. I could have taken my wheels to a local powdercoating shop but instead I borrowed a car and took two half days off work to drive them down to HRE to get the job done to OEM standards.
I'm confused. If they are such a big HRE dealer, why would they use someone else to refinish them?
