    Who would be best for refurbishing these?

    I've got a set of VOLK GT-7's that at first i hated, but i've really grown to like them.

    I don't see the point in swapping them out for a cheaper set of non-forged JR reps of any kind, and my budget doesn't quite stretch to new ones or BBS LM.

    Would a "general" wheel refurb company be able to sort these out including the bolts? And would they be able to do anything with the centre caps.

    Or is there anywhere else people use for wheels like these? I've tried contacting volk directly but they dont respond.

    I'd like to get them back to their former glory if i can, or similar. Like the pic below

    Get a fridge magnet, see if it has the same kind of pull as say the middle of your door .

    I'd pretty sure the arches aren't flat along there and have these dimples/weld marks?
