Someone To Fix Damaged Wheels In Melbourne?

Recommended Posts

Got some damage on my Rays Volk Formula 17's, gutter rash on 3 wheels.

Does anybody know a professional "wheel beater" or someone who knows how to fix these in Melbourne? I'm also missing one of the golden caps and one of the rings around the golden cap, also seeking those 2 items.

Or does anybody have a set of these wheels they are selling?

Here is a pic:

PM me as well as posting here!!

I had some rims re-rolled at this place.

Ajax Motor Wheels

Cnr Exley Drv & Ewar St, Moorabbin

VIC, 3189

Ph:(03) 9555 7737

They were quick and reasonably priced compared with another one I checked out.

They told me exactly what they were going to do and when they would be ready.

Just a couple of nice old guys running the place, but professional enuf for an old workshop.

I don't think they will fix major gutter rash thou. But they were talking about a welder they got to do some work on that sort of thing, so I would give them a call or pop in with the rim and see what they say. They will be able to point you in the right direction.

Also if it's just minor gutter rash, it's pretty easy to clean that up yourself with a decent small toothed file.

My right rear seems to wobble a bit when in motion...I think it might be the small chunk that the previous owner took out, which causes it to not be perfectly round when spinning, giving the illusion that its wobbling....If its something more serious like a buckled rim, are the places listed in here the kinds of joints I need to be talking to for my rim, or are there other specialists etc for it?

Never mind, I just read the services they offer so if mine is buckled they're who I need to see...

However if anyone knows of any on the west side that'd be better :)

Can any1 post up some prices of what it cost them to fix their rims?

Also do any of these places also modify rims? Say if i wanted to change my spokes from chrome to shadow chrome or gunmetal?
