Default Wheel repair questions/help

Hey so here's the scoop, my Pops got a BMW 135i and had it for a few months, the car has these low profile run flat tires on and he damaged his wheels, insurance is going to buy a new wheel, pay to fix one that's cracked and then the other two need to be reshaped. So can anybody recommend a good shop, I already got some quotes from shops like RPM and AWRS Wheel repair but like to have options. Also what are your opinions on going for after market wheels, maybe something non staggered so he can rotate tires easier? Thanks for the help in advance.

Insurance is going to pay to repair a cracked factory wheel? Thats surprising.

This. OP, can you just get a check from the insurance company and look for a used set of the same wheels? I feel like that would be easier.

Yea I was shocked that they could cover it, well only 2 but still. I appreciate the responses but in the end he went the easy route and had BMW take care of it since insurance was covering most of it anyway.
