I've had my wheels polished at Kramer Junction (the intersection of US 395 and California 58) for $10 each, but they didn't do as good a job as the Eloy outfit. This was my second time at Eloy; unfortunately the last time we hit a lot of snow and sanded/salted roads after the first time before we got home, so it was all for naught!

Thanks Jim. Our next few trips go right past there.

If Jim's place doesn't work out...checking plans...we'll be going through Kramer Junction the end of May, 2106. I've seen the place on the left as we pass North through the stop light heading to Lone pine.

It's only about 2,400 miles. $5 per wheel + tip. I'm gonna try a different calculator just to be sure but I can't convince her. It's a deal, at least to me.
I did get some of the Wizard stuff but haven't tried it yet. I think mine are to far into the Dark Side for the easy way.
