    Should be easy to fix blemishes on TTIIs

    Just talked to shop..... they want $150/rim to repair/refinish this.... a few nicks on the lip.

    Forget it. New TT2's are about the same price

    He came with good references, not doubting quality of service, but there is simply no way to justify $150 to bring a $160 rim back to "new" condition.

    There used to be more shops around before the Black wheel Craze hit. I remember when Glenn was in a small garage to a Huge building with a couple of remote locations to back to the size shop he is now. I have no idea how he can do it in the building he has! He does about all the Dealerships

    So I have decided to buy a new set of the same TTII's I currently have since I have a buyer for my wheels with tires equal to the cost of new wheels. I "thought" I had 17x8's up front and 17x 9's in back, but after pulling wheels and checking, IMAG1902.jpg IMAG1912.jpg
    it turns out I have 17x7's and 17x8's (both 4" bs/ 0 offset) . I already purchased the same size tires (225/50 front, 275/40 back). Should I just stay with what I know works or can I safely go to 17x8's and 17x9's?
    The car was lowered. It appears to be a 2" drop. Never had any interference issues with my current set up.

    This is how it looks now....

    Thank you for any opinions :)
