Best Wheel Repair in SoCal

Anyone have any feedback (real-life experiences) they can share with certain Wheel Repair shops in SoCal you would "highly" recommend?

Thanks

On a somewhat related note, can anyone make a recommendation for a shop with a CNC machine that would be able to mill down wheel hubs by a few millimeters? Odd question, I know...
