Wheel repair in Houston area?

Well not for my M3 but have a Cadillac CTS-V which the factory powder coat/paint(it's a pretty thick layer, not sure what it is) damaged.

The wheel itself is in great shape but need to have it refinished.

Does anyone know any wheel repair shop that does good color matching at reasonable price?

Garage List
Ask the people at IMC/WheelCrafters. They have been fantastic with completely removing road-rash on wheels. If they cannot do what you're looking to have done, IMC is sure to have a recommendation on where to go.

Chimney Rock & US-59 area. You can drive by, show them the wheel, and schedule a time. They'll even provide a "loaner" wheel while you're away at the office, etc.

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.

+1 for IMC. The did a flawless job on a wheel form my E90 that I had screwed up pretty badly. Tire was also perfectly balanced when it was remounted after the repair.

Their address is 5615 Schumacher Lane in Houston, and their phone # is 713-266-7239.

I checked my records and was charged $137.50, but that was a year or so ago.

Every time I went by there they were closed (and it is a super sketchy area) and they don't pick up their phone.

I ended up doing the repair at a Caddy dealer, they use an outsourced company and it wasn't cheap ($170) but I got a new Caddy SRX for loaner and it was interesting.

Thats not bad, IMC charges 150 a wheel. So basically the dealership was making 20-30 per wheel.

If IMC charges 150 a wheel than the dealer's price is more than fair....I mean IMC only does standard finishes and the dealer also give me a Caddy for loaner...I wonder who they outsource to tho.
