Exactly what kind of repair are you looking for? Because if the wheel is bent, you'll have a hard time looking for a repair shop. I'm not sure if the repair method for aluminum alloy wheels can be applied to magnesium alloys.

Not bent... just surface oxidation and some form of corrosion.  We're trying to do it ourselves but I was wondering if there was a shop that specialized in such jobs here in the Philippines.

So painting is what you need. Alex Car Restoration does nice paint jobs on wheels. I had a set of wheels that I had them paint before. Cost me 1500 each but worth every centavo IMO. I still see the wheel with the paint intact in someone else's car.

Thanks again, Brent!  If we don't get to do a good job then I'll seek out the contact info for Alex Car Restoration.
