    I had my rear tires change by a place I have been going to with great service for a while, but today they scratched one of my dark gray wheels...they are going to pay for the repair, but didn't have any shops they wanted to recommend for the Tesla quality, so I am turning to you guys.

    I am in the Northern Virginia area, so something close would be ideal.

    Thanks in advance!

    Check with some of the higher-end dealerships in the area. They frequently have guys that come onsite and handle these kinds of repairs for them for used cars or if they mess something up.

    I was going to check with the Tesla service center tomorrow, but I figured I could cast the net wide. Thanks for the reply.

    You can drop the wheel off at a Tesla service location and they will send it out for repair. I usually use Alloy Wheel Repair in Gaithersburg - a bit of a drive but they do great work and they are out in the country.

    Hmm...I might have to see what the turn around time is from Allow Wheel Repair to see if the distance is worth it.

    thanks!

    I have used AWR as well. Once for my Telsa 19" wheel and today I picked up 5 of my Vossen wheels for a couple cars that needed some fixing from pothole season.

    Turn around is usually a couple days. It took them 4 days for my 5 wheels.
