Wheel refinishing GTA area

Hey all, I've been searching around and found some places but there seems to be mixed feelings and I was hoping you could give me an up to date view on where I should take my wheels to be repaired. It's got some curbrash and some scratches from all the damn construction (its everywhere)

Anyway it seems people have strong feelings about:
Union Rim Repair
Carcones
WheelTek

I'm leaning towards Union since the reviews seem more consistently positive, but I've also heard that tires23 and megawheelz are good places to visit too? I'd like to get this done properly so it doesn't flake but also need it done quick and for a reasonable price (<150, otherwise i might as well have BMW do it). Can't be waiting around with no wheels for 2 weeks, that's ridiculous.

Please chime in with your thoughts/experiences TIYA!

I used this place: www.teamnorthsideautosports.com. Ask for Matt. I recently got my wheels powdercoated for $300.

Was that 300$/wheel? If that's for a set, that's an unbeatable deal! You satisfied with the job? How long did it take?

Really precision rim repair? I've heard bad things, and their website doesn't even work properly. Is there a reason you recommend them?

$300 for all 4. It was a special for gloss black powder coat. It came out really good and I am very happy with it. Posted some pics.

those look awesome bro, @ 300 that is SUCH a steal. Mine need to be gloss black too, gonna give them a shout, hopefully they can do 2 for 150 in a reasonable time frame. Union was quoting me 3-4 days for 130/wheel which isn't bad, certainly better than bmw. they're such scammers.

Also, nice brakes

All of my friends have there wheels rebuilt there. They take BBS wheels apart on the regular, polish lips etc. All the work I have seen by them has been amazing.

I've taken rims from 3 different with varying degrees of rim damage and the work has been flawless each time. The website sucks, but Rick is a top guy and I've not personally had any issues.
