Any great wheel repair shops in LA/Valley area?

Need to have some minor touch up done to a wheel. Looking for a shop any of y'all have used that does excellent work - paint matching, etc.

thanks

If you need some repair work beyond paint I would recommend these guys
tru wheel
I had them paint my wheels black, they did a good job at a great price. but if you have more unique paint on your wheels I would recommend mulholland motor sports for any paint work, Julio has always been a standup guy.

thanks.

My wheel has 3 small curb rash spots that only removed the clear and paint. The metal is in excellent condition. I'm hoping they can just touch up the areas without painting the entire wheel, because no guarantee they'll look like the other 3.

Fast forward wheels, ask for Eli. They are the guys that refinished my wheels, I've also had them repair a couple of wheels on my MB. All the work has came out perfect.

Anthony recommended them also.

Thanks, Nick.

If you just need some painting done, then I'll recommend this place...Harry recommended to me, great job for really good price (almost half of other Lotus specialized body shop!) - Aaron and Evelyn are really nice folks.
