There's a reason Champion Motorsport and Ferrari of LI have accounts with Al and send their customers to him. He uses the best machines and does amazing work.
I know you intro'd me to George

Now that you're coming out with a new place, I'm all ears.

Is THIS the place? 490 Jericho? Looks like it. Do they pick up/drop off next day service like George used to? Kind of a drive for me

Yes. He's actually moving to a new, state of the art facility. He doesn't do pick up and drop offs. You need to go there. But again, when you see the type of work he does vs. George, it's not even in the same league. For one, George's last few curb rash repairs on my old 530 wheels were terrible. The match was completely off. When I had him repaint my spokes and repolish my lips on my R10's, I thought he was going to take the wheel apart, as you're supposed to (Al does this). He didn't and I might as well have polished them myself. As for the paint job, he never sanded down the chip marks. He just painted over, so that eventually chipped off. He also charged me an arm and a leg for work that wasn't done the right way.

Come to think of it, the wheels that George did for me actually did chip very quickly, but I thought it was the roads... Thanks again for keeping us ahead of the curve, C!

Now go sign up for the Charthouse Grill meet and stop being a little girlie man

Wheels AMerica in NY. www.bentrim.com They charge a flat rate of $129 per wheel no matter how much damage you have. They do a great job.

I used a great guy in N.J. who picked up and dropped off my wheels to me in Staten Island. His name is John(NJ wheel repair) He was recommended by my dealership.. His number is (908) 489-1740.. He fixed a bent wheel for me and refinished one of my OEM 172's beautifully! His price was right too..
