    Default Wheel repair?

    I have a set of Pilote rims which need some repairing. Anyone know of a company able to take on this type of work?

    In Brisbane Dr Wheels has a good reputation they are in Windsor. There are a few mobile guys but wouldn't exoect the paint finish to be any good long term. Watching for comments from others.

    What kind of damage? Pilote rims are very unusual in their construction and tend to rust out the beads of the rim. This kind of damage can be next to impossible to repair and would require a completely new rim to be rolled, probably with specialised equipment. I doubt if there is anyone here in Australia who could undertake such a task! Are they for a pre-war car? They were only fitted between 1938 and 1946.
