    Hi All,

    I know this topic has been covered before. But the threads I could find were probably a year old or more, and things change.

    Also, other than simply recommending a particular shop, I would appreciate any advice on what to ask the folks who perform this service? Is there a certain methodology, or type of material used that I should look for in *any* whee refinisher?

    I have the 21" grey wheels. The previous owner put a lot of rash on 2 of the wheels. The other two are passable. I'd just go ahead and fix all 4. Tesla wants $250 per wheel, regardless of the amount of damage, which I feel is unfair. And they admit that all they do is sub-contract the work out anyway.

    So I'm looking for someone good in the Silicon Valley area. If anyone happens to know who tesla sub-contracts to in this area that would be even better!

    Any tips appreciated
