I am in your shoes this very moment. Wheel Collision in Bath, PA has just 
straightened up and refinished my severely bent both on the inside and on 
the outside 17x8 Avantgarde. It is en route and should arrive tomorrow.
The total was $180 + $20 shipping. Yeah, rahter steep.
How bad was your damage? How much did you pay? Did they refinish it too
or just rolled it?
