I just got some Volks back from Ye Ole Wheel in Maryland. (410) 796-8401.
I purchased them from a Prime member who told me they only had minor curb rash. When I got them, it was obvious that one of them was pretty badly bent and had severe rash. Two others had pretty bad rash and were slightly bent. Anyway when I got them back from repair, I was more than impressed! They did have to polish the lips though, so the machine lines are gone. I like them better this way though. The Volks are 3 piece wheels and they had to take them apart to do the work. The price was pretty fair. I paid About $500 to straighten three wheels and have all four lips polished. I know people ship wheels to them from all over the East Coast. Service was great. You may want to check with them about having your lips reanodized.

Hope this helps,

i dont think the blitz wheels are anodized. They should look to be polished and coated.

Thanks for the info nbovelle Ill give them a call.

As to the anodizing I called the blitz distributor here in the US and they confirmed that the rims are anodized.

I have checked wheels america before. They do not anodize wheels. It would appear that no one in the US anodizes wheels. At least that is what I am being told.

I may just have to send the wheels off and get them all stripped and repolished so they all match.

If anyone else has any ideas let me know.

Thanks.
