Bay Area Rim Repair

Took off the rear tire yesterday to have it plugged. OCD says that I have to do it myself. I guess I was a bit fatigued and scratched one of the counterbores where the lug bolt goes. It is just a small scratch but I would like to have it fixed. Can anyone recommend a good place?

PS. I just purchased a socket that has the plastic sleeve to make sure that this does not happen again.

Looks like a top notch shop. Has anyone thought of changing the color for the stock wheels? How about redoing the stock 19s to a brushed finish?

i recommend rite way wheels in walnut creek. We've used them numerous times and they're known amongest the tuning crowd. Color match my LMR's perfectly after a curb rash and have had other rims polished and repainted before.

Brought the wheel in and they said that the scratch is too small to fix. I may be able to buff it out.
Thanks for all the replies

Jose is a cool guy but they DO NOT color match ... I say they do an OK job ...

If you want a good quality job go to RJ's pain shop in Pleasanton ... They fix/paint wheels for a local BMW,Lexus,Infiniti and Mercedes dealers ... Plus they do a lot of work for e90post guys as well ...
