    Alloy Refinishing

    I'm going to have the alloys from my '01 330Ci stripped, repaired and reprinted this fall. I had them refinished by Wheel Works a few years ago. The quality of their work was "ok." Can anyone recommend a shop that will strip (bead blast/shell blast/chemically strip), repair and repaint them which will result in better than "ok" results?

    For $800+, I'd look at just replacing them.

    Depending on the style of wheel, as Nick stated, new might be cheaper. I got a set of new 8x17" Style 66s for the E39 for under $230 each.
