    Shop charged $450 all 4, plus 24$ for new M stickers. I was looking at 1k for powder coat (which I normally do for my wheels) I'm very happy with how these turned out.

    I bought the car with the wheels curbed with the intention to have them fixed ASAP...

    Same here. The guy that did it has been in business since 04, and has 5 star reviews. He's doing something right. He said he will stand behind his work.

    That's true, everything has an expiration date.

    My 1998 volvo gets abused to hell and sits in the Texas heat.
    The headlienr has yet to sag. It has super paint that hasn’t shown any signs of shit.

    It’s not impossible to make something that lasts.

    One winter in Vermont stripped a lot of the finish of a brand new set of APEX wheels (satin black). I used matte black spray paint to touch them up with good results. I use “Rust Reformer” (Walmart), because it’s so thin and dries fast.
