Default Wheel Refinishing in New England?

Can you recommend someone to refinish my used Volk ce28 wheels in New England? I'm considering both powder coat and liquid paint refinish. Northern New England best but if I have to go for a drive there could be worse things.

you can check out rimPro in tewksbury.
I haven't done the refinishing gig but have had them true several wheels for me.

+1 for Rim Pro. I've never used them but I regularly hear they do good work.

Rim pro looks good. Surprisingly, I found a shop right here 10 minutes from my home in Vermont. Rim pro is a long ride away and that will add time, hassle, and cost. I'm going to try this local shop. I have seen some of their work and it looks good. We shall see.

Following up on this. I have another set of wheels that I need to have repainted and clear coated. I contacted Rim Pro but I'm finding communication with them very slow and difficult.
Does anyone have a suggestion for a local shop that will strip, repaint, and clear coat a set of forged wheels? I'm in Vermont, but New Hampshire, Maine and Massachusetts will work, even Connecticut or Upstate New York would work.

Update - right now I am planning to use a custom restoration shop in New Hampshire. The chain wheel refinish shops all seem to be geared toward high volume in and out type of work and they have all sorts of restrictions about what they can/will do. I'll update later when I have this sorted out.

There is a place in Fall River, Massachusetts. It is called ARG Wheels. He does repairs and refinishing. I used him to mount my tires on my Mugen MF10’s and TE37’s. I plan on using him to refinish my next set of wheels.

Well at their prices I sure hope they do. I'd _almost_ be better off buying new wheels rather than going to them!

I did contact Rim Pro. They won't do the center caps. Also - quite expensive.
