Well looking at my Volks, I definitely think they could all use some work...especially one having a small bend. I'd have no problem getting them repaired, however don't want to lose the Volk bronze color. Would they have to be repainted?

Also, since they are Volks...which are aluminum forged monoblock wheels, is it even possible? I'm sure some of you guys have had them repaired, just need some input.

hey bro.

you can get them repaired, but they have to be re-painted, and volk doesn't give out their color codes:( I'm pretty sure a wheel repair place can color match it though:thumbsup: GL! :)

This is one of those situations I wish I was in Cali for, I bet most of these shops are going to look at my wheels like any other wheels. :(

Yeah I could, but not only do I not know any shops there....shipping them out is going to cost an extra $100-$150.

word. you will lose stickers near the damaged area though.
depending on the the damage and the worker, you maybe able to preserve the stickers. but yes, reborn is right. prepare for the possibility of losing the stickers if its near a damaged area.

The stickers aren't a huge deal, I can always buy those for pretty cheap. I just want the wheels to look like they're new.

I'd call up some classic car shops (aka american body shops, vs immigrant owned) and see what wheel repair shop they recommend. I'm sure they can put you in touch with a good restoration/repair shop.
