Looking for Wheel Repair & Powdercoating in Atlanta...

I have one wheel with minor curb rash that I'd like to get it fixed, and I also want to get the whole set powdercoated. I checked Yelp and it looks like Metro Wheels is the best in the area (http://www.metrowheels.net). Can anyone confirm or provide any other suggestions?

Thank you!

I had a wheel done by Wheelright. I don't know if that is still their name or if they are still in business.

Hmmm... I googled them, but didn't find a business in GA. I found these guys in PA: http://www.thewheelright.com/ and I found this link: http://www.rightlook.com/alloy-wheel...r-systems.html. Maybe the guys you used had the WheelRight system?

I've used Wheel Wizard in Chamblee, they do some of the best work I've seen. Highgly recommend!. Good luck.

Thanks bud, but I called them too (also good yelp ratings) and no luck!! Their number is disconnected. I guess I'll just roll with Metro Wheels, no pun intended. hehe

Metro Wheels has a good reputation for wheel repair and powder coating. They will do a full service job and unmount/mount the tires. I had them fix a wheel on my Lexus a while back and they did a good job.

Millers Powdercoating has been highly recommended to me from other forum members as well but they do not unmount/mount so you would have to just bring them the bare wheels. I have not had my wheels done yet but this is probably where I'll go. Not sure if they repair.

LOL... nice!!! A friend of mine just recommended Millers Powdercoating to me yesterday too. I'll give them a call to compare pricing. FYI, Metro quoted me $110/wheel for repair and $130/wheel to powdercoat (repair included). I definitely like the unmount/mount option, but we'll see what Millers has to offer. More later...

So I finally got a hold of Millers and they quoted me $75/wheel. They said they do not actually do repair, but stated that they do smooth out most rough edges in their sanding process, before powdercoating. And they also do not mount/unmount.

I also spoke to Alloy Wheel Repair Specialist and they quoted me $150/wheel for repair and paint. This was the mobile guy behind Mercedes-Benz of Buckhead.

I've used both companies. Both are great and they do nice work.

Here's the latest set I had done about 2 years ago from Millers.

Nice!! Those look like they have a nice finish on them. I'm going to go visit Metro and Millers in person to get a feel for the shops and I'll decide from there. The OEM silver is actually growing on me a little bit (although I miss gunmetal after the brake dust starts to show on silver), so I'll likely wait a few more months to powdercoat them. I dunno, we'll see.
