Anyone know of a good place that is not so expensive to repair chrome rims around the Orange County or Los Angeles area? I looked at Wheels America in Stanton, but they charge like $200 somethin per wheel for chrome.

Well, unfortunately, it's in San Diego (actually Santee), but I went to EDDCO. They repaired an 18 inch Blitz Type 03 that had hit a pot hole, and two more that had scraped up a sidewalk. These wheels had a polished lip, so it cost about 60 bucks per wheel to fix.

As for chrome rim repair, I guess it would be slightly more than the 125-150 (I think) to chrome plate a wheel. I'm pretty sure it wouldn't hit 200 bucks.

NSXFURY is correct. Eddco in Santee, CA has the very best reputation for wheel repair. Maybe give them a call. (I have not used them, but I have talked to them about chroming my OEM wheels, and if I do, Eddco will get the job. They use more coats/steps and have a better warrantee than any other wheel company by far, and they only wanted $125/wheel. I was referred to them by two other places, an Acura dealer and another wheel company that has Eddco do thier wheel repairs. Best luck.

Does anybody know any repair shops in Washington/Oregon? Some sport shops here say I'll have to send my chipped 18' chrome wheel down to CA for repair.

There are quite a few wheel repair places cited in the FAQ at http://www.nsxprime.com/FAQ/TireWheel/tirewheelrepair.htm

Unfortunately, none are in WA/OR.

There are also a bunch at http://dir.yahoo.com/Business_and_Economy/Shopping_and_Services/Automotive/Repairs_and_Service/Restoration/Wheel_Refinishing/ and one, the Shine Shop, is located in OR. However, on their website, it appears that they specialize in polishing wheels, not in repairing them.

I would just send them to one of the outfits in CA if I were you. Good luck...
