I dropped off my stock wheels at Wheel Refinisher in Annapolis to have the pockets painted black.

So I drove up to Annapolis (From Leesburg) to pick up the wheels yesterday and have them reinstalled.

I washed the car today and brake dust was not the only thing that came off the wheels.












They offered to redo them, but it is a 3 hour drive round trip. I don't want to waste another 3 hours and possible have the same issues....

I'd try to get my money back as well and let them know about the time you've already wasted. Those wheels from that pic were not prepped for paint at all.How did you pay?

I'd inform both that your canceling payment due to poor performance of suitable service. Theses wheels were not properly done.They would not have that gloss under the apparent spray enamel they used. They coating on those wheels should have been removed or scuffed to accept either a good 2k or self etching primer first. Looks like they used a friggin spray can. I would not allow them to correct it unless they A-give a guarantied the work for a pre-specified time. B-compensated for lost time.
