    Default Curbed.ca wheel refinishing

    I recently had my wheels refinished by Curbed and the process was really painless and overall they did a great job.

    I opted to jump in both feet and got a complete rebuild, polish, and refinish using my original lips and hardware.

    The turnaround time for this job was just under 4 weeks and the center color is Sizzling Crimson Mica. The full review (and more pics) can be found here on stanceiseverything.com

    After






    If you are looking to have some work done to your wheels check them out at www.curbed.ca tell him Dave sent you and he might be nicer

    Bet most of you thought they were black

    I'm sure most of us are eager to know how much the entire process costs.

    +1 outta curiosity

    But ppl should also note that you can't really use it as a guideline for your own quote seeing as every rim is different and might require a different process

    Wow they look great Dave! I used Curbed as well for my Volk GTP's. Turnaround time took a little longer than Dave's because my wheels have a machined look.

    Overall very impressed with their work. Now I have to clean up my center caps and wheel bolts.

    It does vary, for a 3 piece like mine about 220ish per. So make sure you love the wheels.

    Dave this will hopefully be your last set. It's rare like you want and it has nice fitment. I may refinish my wheels at curbed when I have the chance

    I don't see myself getting another set of wheels anytime soon after the amount of work I have put into these.

    However this is only my second set of wheels for this car

    Ya I paid a cost to be lazy lol.

    Mike is a good guy to work with though so if you come to him with a budget he will do his best to work within it.
