Thanks Wheel-Fix-It!

I can't say enough about these guys. Yesterday I dropped off the Volk GT-Cs from my VR-4 and a set of Michelin Pilot Super Sports for them to mount and balance. They took care of them very quickly and I never once worried that they would damage my beloved wheels. They were also able to squeeze me in to do a rotate and balance on my Legacy since I was there at the shop. Their rates are very reasonable and their work is top notch.

Everyone there is super friendly and professional. I am so glad you guys are here in HSV. If anyone else is taking their wheels and tires somewhere else, you're doing it wrong!

I've got 2 of my wheels there today getting the tmp sensors banded in. I should be picking them up around 1. I think they do great work as well.

I've got some rashed wheels. Thinking about getting them refinished there and also powdercoated matte black. Anyone have experience with getting wheels painted there?

I was too excited yesterday to clean the car up or snap pics. I just snapped a few pics with my phone outside. The car is filthy

Sounds like a good place. I'll have to take my stuff there when I get my next set of tires and perhaps to liven up my OEM wheels.

Let me know how the MPSS work out. Heard alot of good things about them.

WTAK does. Check out the wheels they did for their van:

And then there's the custom Challenger wheels they did:

I had these on my Porsche from the factory and they're a great tire until they wear out. I've been happy with the grip and life I've gotten out of the Continental Sport Contact 3s I replaced them with. But these are all Porsche N-spec tires, so their performance has to be around the same within close tolerances. I'm sure it will vary more with non N-spec tires.

Thanks for the great review!! That's what we strive for!!! How did the Legacy do?? Is it better or do we need to put the tires in the back?

Still a good amount of vibration through the steering wheel, I guess I just got unlucky with these Yokohamas. I am going to change the oil in it this weekend and will probably rotate them back in my garage.

The new set of wheels came in for the Evo so as soon as I get some tires I'll be back by for you guys to mount and balance them

Yes sir, you can drop them off and pick them up later or wait on them, what ever is easier for you. But just talk to Ash and she will set you up. Phone # is 256-830-9992.

I have yet to take my wheels down to be straightened, but they've been very courtious through the phone calls I've had with them. I hope that soon I'll be able to drop by and get it done... Just need the money first
