Subject: <BMW> Aluminum wheel repair, San Diego, CA area.
I had a wheel on my 6er that had a slight ding in the rim, from
the time I acquired the car. Although it didn't affect the balance of the
wheel, I finally decided to have it repaired for esthetic reasons.
I utilized Eddco Wheel Co. in Santee (eastern suburb of San Diego).
Although the job wasn't much of a challenge for them, I did have the
opportunity to talk with an employee and be shown some of the damaged
wheels they had yet to work on, and some that had already been repaired.
Some of the wheels had their rims literally folded under; I was told
that they were repairable.
Without going into a lot of detail, the employee stated that the
process of heating and reshaping the wheel is accomplished under
controlled conditions, i.e., they monitor the temperature of the applied
heat, as it varies from application to application.
The quality of their work appeared impressive, if their claims
of extent of prior damage, was in fact accurate.
