I'm not sure if they do real magnesium "mag wheels" but I've heard several
local references to a shop here (Atlanta) which does wonders on damaged
cast aluminum wheels. The shop is called Wheel Wizard, Inc. I spoke (no
pun intended) with the owner at the recent NTW World of Wheels show and
saw some examples of his work. Amazing. Suposedly he started a backyard
type shop and grew into a full fledged business. Rumor says that he
keeps a closed shop and won't let anyone see how he works his magic. I
had hopes that he would also do wires, but no such luck.
I have a card with address and phone at home. Drop me a note if you'd
like the details.
PS. I enjoyed visits last week in CA with TeriAnn and Roland. Sorry I
didn't get to set up others. Maybe next time...
