    depends on the erea and how much you're planing to spend, powder coated will be better than cheap solvent

    They don't work on buckled or badly damaged wheels... Unless you go there in person waving cash in their face. Kind of expensive, and not the best anymore.

    I've used Rimtec which are a mile from Pristine, just as good, and much cheaper, although they can't do welding.

    Mint alloys seem to have good standard of work and there's loads of examples on the Facebook & Twitter accounts.

    Wheelgenie were the only place Ive found that will rebuild chewed up lips by welding, they did a lovely job on my rears after they got mullered by a tyre changing machine.
