Does anyone know a local company that does good wheel refinishing? I need the machined lips on my wheels redone and the guy I usually use says he can't do it. I know for a fact it can be done but they guy I used to go to is closed. Anyone know some place that's good?

Is Steve Van Sickle not in business anymore? I heard he's the man to see but the office number is disconnected and there is no longer a website.

I used Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists down in Valley Park right off 141 and 44. That was 2½ yrs ago, though. I heard they are no longer around. Also, that name sounds familiar...hmmm.

Thanks guys. Alloy Wheel repair is who I know but they said they couldn't do it. I used to go to the location off 141 in Valley Park but they closed down. I guess no one around here can do machined finishes.
