    In case anyone is looking for a shop to refinish your wheels, I wanted to refer you guys to the shop I have been using for years in Garden Grove. The shop is JR Wheel 714-390-6664. Ask for Luis and let him know that you heard about his shop from the Tesla Forum. I posted a pic of his business card.

    I am in no way affiliated with him or his shop...I am just a very happy long time customer. He does phenomenal work and much more reasonably priced then all the shops around. Luis has done dozens of sets for me personally (for my Tesla's as well as my other cars). He is currently refinishing a set of Roadster wheels for me which I will post pics next week....

    Here are some pics of the Tesla wheels he has refinished for my old cars. Please note that the gray 20's and 21's on my X and the gray roadster wheels are a slightly different powder coat color (by choice) and the 21's on the blue S are satin black and the gray S wheels are gloss black :)

    Here are the pics of the refinished bronze OEM wheels on my Roadster. What do you think of the new matte textured Bronze vs the gloss black?
    Again, I highly recommend Luis's shop....great guy who does great work!

    I'm having him powder coat a set of 19" slipstreams metallic gunmetal grey for me. I'll post a pic when I get them.

    Not sure what the individual cost would be, but mine was 450 for the set including repair of some rash on one.

    Dropped my rims off with Luis and he said it should be done within 2 days. So far, he's been such a great guy and so patient with all my questions.
