Hi Aaron,

Seeing that no one has answered your request, all I can suggest is that you look around in your yellow pages for a Company specializing in alloy wheel repair.

Way out here in B.C. there's a Company (Panther precision machine) which does all the wheels for Porsche, Volvo, Jaguar etc ... an absolutely perfect job ... so I suggest you e-mail them, attn: Clint ... I am biased, of course, because they fixed up my wife's wheels (1995 salt attacked vehicle) and, they say, even Corvettes from Seattle journey up here for a 'fix'.

Maybe they can tell you where to go !

To refurbish alloy wheels buy some alloy wheel filler from your local automotive shop. Apply this the same as you would with car body filler, once dried sand down smooth and spray with alloy wheel spray paint also available from a good automotive shop, you may have to order the products. (remember to remove tires from the wheels before any work is done)
