Ok so I'm looking to get my OEM wheels refurbished very soon. Are there any particular questions I should be asking these places in terms of their process? I want them done as OEM as possible.

So I called around to a few places and due the fancy pants paint process on these wheels it's going to cost about 1K to get them done. Yikes.

Thanks for the comments guys but I'm really just looking for what I should look for in a refurbisher. Do they use a certain type of equipment, paint, etc. I think I've found a place though. cheers.

The shadow chrome finish on these wheels will make it difficult, when i had similar wheels before asked the price for refinishing it was more than the cost of new wheels!

that is not far off the rate you should expect to pay if they do good work and can match the color.

Yeah I think these guys will do a good job. They have lots of experience with these wheels and knew all about the color inconsistencies that came from the factory. I really want mine on the darker end of the spectrum. I'm probably going to do tires at the same time so it's going to be a big wheel hit on my wallet.
