I know Wheel Medic advertises a lot, but don't know anyone who has used them.

Call my sponsor, Wheel Technology, at 614-447-9199.  2709 Westerville Rd.  They repair a lot of crazy stuff, so I imagine your mini wheel would be no big deal.  Tell them Jon & Darin sent you.

Hmmm..... I gave the owner a call on his cell phone to see what's up.  I'll let you know when I hear back.  Sorry about that.

I've never used them, but I have had them (and others) quote stuff.  I've always found that it was cheaper to find a used wheel on e-bay and buy it than have one repaired.

Mini 17 wheel 500 bucks on ebay fix/mount 115 @wheel medic. Baby BMW.. still means big money. The wheel wasn't very popular so not much in the junkyard pipeline either. I can get a whole set of knock offs for around 550 but 100 bucks still sounds  better for an old daily driver.

Aaron got an STi wheel fixed from wheel medic after an encounter with a pot hole in 06ish
he was happy enough with it

My wheel was cracked along the barrel so it was scrap... so even though it had the mini emblem, and I always thought they were an oem option...they have Drag and the part number on the back side. Not a very good or expensive wheel so WM was able to get me a replacement ordered for 140 bucks.. a whole lot better than 400-500 bucks. Might be a little odd with 3 beat up ones and one new one :) I recommend these guys.. they located that wheel for me instead of sending me on my way.  Good effort =Good customer service.

Drag is a knock off wheel company, a lot like rota.  Speaking of Rota did you guys see this.....http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2013/08/yes-its-ironic-that-rotas-being-knocked-off-but-its-still-a-problem/ (http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2013/08/yes-its-ironic-that-rotas-being-knocked-off-but-its-still-a-problem/)

Pretty hilarious that a fake is being faked and they are pissed about it.

I used them to repair two Panasport race wheels. Did a good job, not cheap however but saved me from buying two wheels.
