Hey whats up all fellow members thought i'd share my story of what happened to me when i purchased a set of 19" coupe Rays off a g35 owner in Mississauga from Kijji. So i went out to pick up a set and that seemed like a good deal. it Had some scuffs but i told the buyer, aslong as they weren't bent or cracked then everyhting was good and he ensured me that they were good and if they were bent or cracked he'd give me my money back. So being the dumby i am i aggreed and paid him for the rims, i mean they seemed like they were good, good rubber on them to (khumos) with about 75-80% tread, which i thought i could make some money back by selling them becuase i wanted to go 245/40/19 all around. So i took them home.
I ordered Continentals Extrmes DW 245/40/19 all around from tire rack (Neal tire rack vendor) was helpful enough to make sure things went smooth with the transaction and get them sent them out quickly ASAP. I got them put on balanced and installed with nitrogen filled and two days later while i was on the 401 at about 110-120km
i was wobbling a bit. i was unsure so i got the tire balance rechecked and it turned out all 4 rims were bent, i was
as f*ck i called the dude i got them from and of course he denied knowing they were bent and said maybe i bent them
My local shop sent them out to Carcones but they deemed one of the rims irrepairable.
So i was stuck with 4 bent forged rays with scuffs and one rim being irrepairable
, So i did some research and contacted some memebers off the panoramic-3d.ru forum Beemer forum and Subaru club and they all recommended different shops but i called them up they all seemed shady and quoted me ridiculous prices for straightening and refinishing them. My friend told me to call up Paul or his brother Goffredo Toronto Rim Repair King , i got in contact with paul on the phone and i explained to him what happened and feeling bad for me being ripped off he agreed on helping me out and gave me a fair price on repairing them so i agreed for straightening them and refinishing the wheels
So i went out to meet them and at first i was skeptackle because when i arrived at the address given to me, it was a house and not a business unit. So i said lets check it out maybe they have a shop somewhere. So I was greeted by Goffredo who explained They are actually more of a mobile service. Goffredo explained they do what can be done mobile and whatever cant is done at a shop they are contracted with, (they do all the work of course). He explained the process to me that these were not badly damaged after putting them on the machine and can easily be repaired, He also showed me different paints and finishes I could go with. So i left the rims in there hands and was told next week they could be delivered to my house mounted and balanced back.
I recieved the rims the following week and wow, they turned out amazing, i had asked for a little darker tint in the wheel paint and it turned out great. Goffredo told me if i didnt like it hed repaint it at no charge and deliver them back in 2-3business days, but i liked them. I thought they turned out great. I previously had asked if they could take pictures on each step from prep to finish and a detail outlining whats beeing done but, it wasnt possible due to not being allowed to shown the companys process due to the business wanting to keep that part on confidential. But i thought it would be a good idea to show members the quality of work.
Overall it was unfortunate for me for what had happened but thanks to Toronto Rim King repair for helping me out. I highly recommend them to anyone wanting to get there rims fixed wether itd be curb rash or straightening. Good pricing, honest and reliable service and the rims where delivered on time. If you guys are looking to get into contact with them here are there contact info: It doesnt hurt to get a estimate while your shopping around, but there a company that i can honestly vouch for.
P.S. I know everyones always wanting pictures but i dont have a camera, but if your in the peel region, your more then welcome to come by and see them in person.
