Is your free vehicle wheel/tire install valid if I'm just too lazy to put on my winter set myself?

How much do you charge to analyze a rim for bends/cracks?

I have a rim that always slow leaks. 2 different tires and it still does it so I assume something is up with the rim and not sealing properly.

If the wheels are off the car, I can inspect them no charge.

Sounds good. This for 4 wheels correct? PVD Bright/Black Chrome - $800-$850 (up to 20")

Also do you have a picture of a wheel done in this black chrome?

What's the process for repairing a bent lip? I've got a rare set of wheels, one of which has a slight bend in the lip, that I have already had some rash removed and repainted. Can the repair be completed without needing to be refinished again?

Is the chrome real chrome or powdercoated? I have some 3 piece wheels I would like to eventually have the outer lips redone as some of the chrome isnt in the best of shape. What would it run to have that done?

Correct, 4 wheels, repaired, straightened, blasted, prepped and PVD chromed. This usually takes about 3 weeks, give or take..

The straightening process does involve heating the area where the bend is. If the bend is on the front lip, we cannot promise the wheel wont need to be refinished. I would try my best to avoid it though.

Unfortunately we cannot PVD 3 piece wheels. They must be a a 1 piece. sorry. Here is an explanation on what PVD is,

A Breakdown of PVD vs. Chrome
First, PVD chrome wheels are up 2-3 lbs lighter than their chrome counterparts. This is because the actual media used to coat the wheels weighs far less than traditional chrome plating. Because PVD doesnít add extra weight to your wheels, this helps decrease rotating mass. This reduction in weight is always good to boost your ability to get up and go!

PVD wheels can also be used in all-weather types, year-round. They only require basic cleaning, with soap and water, during your normal car wash. This is especially important to consider in inclement climates, like the Midwest or East Coast. During snowy, winter conditions, it is common for Magnesium Chloride and salt to be used on roads. This unfortunately not only eats away at snow, but also plated chrome. In these conditions, it is recommended that chrome plated wheels are removed during the winter, and in summer when in use, require meticulous maintenance. Also, salt causes chrome to crack, peel and pit Ė while PVD resists such negative effects.

Make the Upgrade to PVD
If, for some reason your PVD rims do get damaged, they can be repaired or re-coated easily. While you can re-plate chrome, it is difficult and expensive. This is why most wheel manufacturers only offer warranties on chrome wheels for 1-2 years, while PVD is often guaranteed for 3+ years.
As an added perk of PVD vs. chrome wheels, PVD is made with environmentally-friendly products, while chrome uses incredibly toxic chemicals, such as hexavalent chromium. If one or the other is going to be wearing off on our streets and air, itís best to keep it as green as possible.
So, PVD has all the benefits of powder-coating, combined with the good looks of chrome, for an unbeatable combination
