I put a curb rash on one of my 22" rims on my Expedition and need get some advice on if it can be fixed. Does anyone have any good experiences fixing chromed rims? If so, please share their contact info with me.

I have no personal experience, but found this (http://www.curbrash.com/oklahoma-wheel-repair.htm) on a google search.

A local body shop may have a lead for you also.

Your local body shops, especially dealership shops, have industry publications in the waiting room and office that have 10's of ads and locations for wheel repair/replacement facilities across the country and they can also be found here, http://www.hemmings.com/

$300 to repair minor scrapes in mine last month. The repair center in PA had to shipit toMexicoforrechroming as well so I lost the wheell for 3 weeks.

Good luck - any wheel repair center should do it.

That sucks.....chrome is difficult to fix as it will need to be re-chromed.

Contact Steve at Wheel Wizard in Bellevue, he is great and very reasonable. http://www.stevescustom.com/

He won't be able to fix the chrome but can help with the process. Your best bet might be to find a replacement or just buy a new wheel if you can still get them. It could be cheaper in the long run.....
