Guys. Anyone know of a good shop in San Jose to get bent rims fixed except wheel techniques? Horrible reviews on yelp for them. I got two rims that are bent from inside and making the steering wheel shake. Help would be appreciated!

Right rear control arm bent

Right rear control arm is bent and i need to fix this - anyone has any good ideas? My warranty is expiring tommorow and no dealership is willing to help out.

Any ideas on where to go to fix?

Theres a place up in Walnut Creek, i believe its called Rite-Way Wire & Wheel Specialists. They got good reviews and are legit. I haven't personally used them, but hear they are honest and legit.

I've gone there for a quote for some minor curb rash, they seemed very nice and legit. I didn't get the rash repaired so i can't say anything about the quality of the work.

They quoted me $200 to repair a 2-3 inch curb rash on just the lip of a single ZCP wheel (nothing on the spoke), and according to some people on this forum that is a bit high. However they weren't sure about the exact color of the ZCP wheels to color match the repair, they thought it was "Hyper-Silver".

$200/wheel is what I've been quoted for powdercoating from them. I opted to keep my stock. I know at least 3 guys who went with them and love their wheels now. Much better than wheel technique in San Jose. To fix curb rash, it's typically about $80-$120, depending on size of rash.

Akra Evo system in Northern Cali?

Anyone with the full Akra Evo system in the bay area who would be willing to meet up and take me for a ride?

I have the OEM exhaust mod, and am contemplating the switch. I would love to hear it if you are available.

PM me if you are willing.

Thanks!

^I'll be down to meet up as well just to hear the full Akra!

I have the Akra slip-on and looking for more sound but want to hear it in person to make sure it's not too loud for my backseat toddlers.

I'm in East Bay Fremont area most of the time.

You guys are welcome to meet at our shop in Fremont. It's private property and no one will disturb us.

Let me know and I'll setup the date.

No problem - how much did they charge you? Did they do a good job?

I dropped it off this morning and it's still there. It's actually a third part company that works with BMW and bunch of other luxury dealerships. It was $225. Rite way was $175 but like I said, it's too far to drive in traffic and their days are very limited. Stevens creek BMW is 1.5 miles away from where I live so its works perfect. Let's see how they did when I pick it up in couple of hours.
