So the tire shop that was replacing one of my tires end up damaging the lip of my rear rim. The scuffed off the pain on edges of the lip. I am looking for a local shop in the Washington DC area that can repair the rim. Any ideas? Do I have to worry about the finish looking different then the other 3 rims?

As well the guy mounting the new tire mounted it the wrong way. Is it ok to the drive the car for a few days with a reverse mounted tire?

No on driving with the tire mounted in reverse!

Heard lot's of good things about these guys when I lived in Ellicott City. Never had a need to use them though.

Yes. It is very nearly impossible for anyone to match the OEM "Shadow Chrome" finish that BMW used on E39 M5 and E36/8 Z3 M Coupe & Roadster (2001-2002) wheels.

Your absolute best bet would be to get them to buy you a new wheel.

Check out these guys in Rockville,MD. Other board members have used them in the past and I have heard good things about them.
