Anyone out there on the east coast know of anyone that can repair the magnesium rims? Mine have a bit of road rash.
Or...maybe someone has a set collecting dust in the back of the garage...and I hope they have gone down in price since 2001.

Try Rim Pros in Sydney Yeller. Had a bent rim on a rental a few years back they fixed for me. Seemed like good guys and I noticedthey refinish rims as well. Gonna be a ferry ride for ya though....

Those magnesium rims were expeeeeeeeensive on the C5! I think they have gone down in price since 2001 and they pop up from time to time. I’ve seen a set for a $1000 for all for, not each, like it used to be. Let us know how the repairs go!

Checking to see if a shop in the Kenmount Road area of St. John's is still open. Otherwise there is a guy near where I live that might be able to help but I don't have his details.

OK Ruuff thanks, good to know there is a back-up. I wouldn't mind the trip but a bit closer would be better. If you get the info 12 cents, let me know. We can let everyone know how it goes.

Still waiting on a couple of replies. I am away at work and some of the guys I am trying to contact might be as well.
