HISTORY OF WHEEL REPAIR

The use of alloy wheels began in the mid-90s as a means to dress up high-end European cars. As these
expensive wheels became more popular, the concept was duplicated by aftermarket specialty manufacturers
offering wheels that were not only stylized, but looked sexy and sleek, too! Demand for their supply increased.
Within five years, domestic and Japanese manufacturers had also begun installing alloys on their high-cars.
Today, alloy wheels are the manufacturers' wheel of choice. The price of aluminum and its lighter weight, as
well as its good looks, provides a very reasonable alternative to outdated steel wheels and hubcaps.

In the US, wheel repair, and specifically, severely damaged wheels, started as a direct result of the insurance
business. The first companies offering repairs did so from machine shops where they utilized welding and tracer
lathes. Polished and painted wheels were then re-polished and re-painted to make the job complete. This
repair process is referred to as remanufacturing. Today's shops, however, utilize sophisticated CNC lathes and,
like the OEMs, they powder coat versus wet paint.

Two of the early companies that provided remanufacturing services have grown into multi-million dollar
businesses and account for over 100 million USD in annual sales. Their specialty is core exchange programs –
purchasing damaged cores from salvage yards and remanufacturing them. Over the years they have
accumulated tremendous inventories exchanging wheels held in inventory for damaged cores. Several hundred
smaller companies around North America account for an additional 400 million USD in annual gross revenue.

Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists (AWRS) emerged in
the early 2000s as an alternative to shop- based
providers. Initially catering to automobile dealers
selling used cars, AWRS discovered a niche
offering professional and time-efficient on-site
repair to commercial customers. The mobile
wheel repair industry was born as AWRS created
technology that delivers shop based quality in the
mobile environment.

ABOUT AWRS

Tom Morris began servicing the automotive market in 1985 by offering a superior Teflon paint product to
enhance and protect the painted finishes on all types of vehicles, including aircraft and boats. His company also
developed a complete line of support products for automobile detailing operations, ultimately supplying
products to over 3,000 licensed operators throughout the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Saudi
Arabia, Germany, Australia, and Asia.

In 1999, Mr. Morris became aware of a very small but rapidly growing trend for repairing wheels. After
extensive research, Mr. Morris and his associates engineered a way to provide professionally repaired wheels at
the customer's location, thus beating the remanufactures at their own game!

Tom Morris founded Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists in 2000 and the following year began offering licenses to
operators across the United States. In 2003, in order to franchise this exciting concept worldwide, he formed
Wheel Repair Solutions International, Inc (WRSI.) Today, WRSI's technology has evolved to include our
patented paint adhesion technology, our patent-pending Mobile Reconditioning Facility (MRF), our patented
mobile wheel straightening system, and copyrighted repair processes that give us the competitive edge. AWRS
has applied for these patents not only in North America, but also the European Union and Australia.

AWRS has grown to a conglomeration of six businesses including corporations in Canada, Europe, and
Australia. Our Atlanta-based Corporate Office is located in Atlanta, Georgia where our exceptional staff of 14
professionals oversees such departments as Franchise ( national and international accounts ), Finance,
Purchasing, Marketing, Training, and Research and Development. Our Headquarters also operates our Atlanta-
based wheel repair business, an enterprise that not only provides a recruiting base for technical support
personnel and R&D for new repair processes and equipment, but also is a proving ground for our marketing and
sales programs. It currently employs 12 technicians with plans to hire 12 more, in addition to operating
a remanufacturing plant.

TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENTS

The AWRS system provides repairs of any OEM or aftermarket wheels that are painted, machined, polished, or
that may have hyper-silver, accent colors, or bends. It utilizes our tools, methods, our patented chemical
bonding, and time-tested products. All repairs are warranted for life.

   The Mobile Reconditioning Facility (MRF) – Our patent-pending, all-weather "shop on wheels,"
   the MRF can be housed within a trailer or cab and chassis truck.

   New Bee Wheel Straightener – Our patent straightening system, built specifically for use
   within our MRF, allows wheels to be straightened with the tire in place or partially removed from
   the bead seat. It also allows for the quick and efficient measure of roundness.

   New Bee Wheel Spinner – Our patent mobile devise spins the wheel with the appropriate
   torque and speed to uniformly cut wheel beads and simulate lathe lines. This method corrects low
   spots or divots that may occur when repairing the wheel while it is stationary or "on the car.“

   Patented pre-paint process (US Patent 6,347,444) – includes specially engineered cleaning systems,
   self-etching primers, and a chemical bonding agent to maximize finish adhesion.

   AWRS color matching systems – provide for matching all OEM wheel colors. We use the most
   advanced clear-coat finish in the world for its fast-drying, hardness, and durability which rivals
   that of powder-coated wheels.

  In-house technician certification and training is under constant review by our Technology
  Councel. Subsequent advanced training is designed and provided as quality standards for retail
  and wholesale markets change.

REMANUFACTURING

We divide wheel repair into two categories. The first is cosmetic. These repairs, typically performed in an MRF,
are provided when the tire is still holding air. The second is structural, a repair necessary when the tire will not
hold air and welding is required, or when a machined-finished wheel face must be re-machined.

Structurally damaged wheels, including those that are crackled, severely bent, and even broken, are repaired
using state-of-the-art CNC technology and digital profiling. This process involves stripping the wheel of its
former finish, welding, (if required), and safely cutting the surface with a CNC lathe. Once the wheel is cleaned,
powder primed, painted, and powder clear-coated, it is oven-baked. Our process is very similar to those
performed as a new wheel is made. The AWRS remanufacturing technology includes thousands of digitized
wheel profiles (stored by Hollander number) and paint formulas for most of the OEM wheels and their pockets.
It also includes paint mixing systems to duplicate paint colors for aftermarket wheels and to make custom
colors to match the cars painted finish. Polishing systems are also included.

What happens when wheels are cracked within the spoke or hub
or are completely destroyed as a result of a collision and thereby
preventing safe repair? WE have a solution. OEM replacement
wheels can be purchased from our remanufacturing operations or
special wholesalers who give the AWRS network a price
concession. Those wheels in-stock can be shipped immediately and
directly to the franchisee's or the customer's location.

Regardless, our franchisee will enjoy a profit
margin of 20-100% on these transactions. It's
just that easy! There is no other company in the
                                                                                                                                                    Before

                                                                                      car wash/detail shops, auto auctions, car rental
                                                                                         agencies, and auto repair centers which can
                                                                                             provide a constant supply of customers.



The key to maximizing revenue is utilizing efficient territory management; providing each technician a tight,
well-defined boundary for servicing minimizes drive time and improves response time on customer emergency
calls. Creating the most efficient route within a territory is a critical strategy for maximizing sales with current
customers while developing new customers within the territory.

OUR MARKETPLACE

The AWRS franchisees serve two markets – wholesale and retail. Wholesale is defined as high volume potential
accounts such as pre-own departments of auto dealerships, car auctions, rental car fleets and insurance
companies. The retail customer is typically found and serviced through cooperating retail partners.

Automobile Dealerships – Cars, whether new or used, often arrive from the factory with minor damage to
wheels requiring attention before they can be sold. Trade-ins must be reconditioned before being placed on
used car lots for re-sale. Service departments become retailing partners. Larger Mercedes and BMW
dealerships are allowing our personnel to provide estimates as their customers drop off their cars for service.
This is referred to as dedicated service drives and has become a popular trend. Many auto dealers have collision
shops and are "Direct Repair Shops" for the major insurance companies.

OUR MARKETPLACE (cont.)

Car Rental Agencies – Minor surface damage and curb-
damaged wheels must regularly be repaired on these vehicles
in order to be competitive with other rental agencies. When a
car has been driven 25,000 miles, most car rental businesses
will retire the car and sell it through auction or on their own
car lots. This option, like the car dealerships, provides an
excellent source of revenue for our operators. This market
segment is considered wholesale.


Auto Auctions – All manufactures sell lease returns through this venue, a multi-billion dollar segment of the
industry. AWRS currently is the preferred repair provider for Audi/VW, BMW and Mercedes. This market
segment is considered wholesale.

Collision Shops – All major insurance companies establish "Direct Repair Shops" that are either independently
owned or corporate-owned. Many AWRS franchisees enjoy preferred relationships with Progressive, State
Farm, All State, Hartford, Liberty Mutual, and Farmers Insurance. Opportunities also exist for collision shops to
up- sell customers who have "non-insurance pay" wheel damage that occurred unrelated to the accident.

Tire Stores – All national and independent stores can partner with us, simply outsourcing as required.
Consumers will purchase wheel repair or wheel straightening when they're replacing their tires.

Mass Merchandisers – Potential partners such as Pep Boys, WalMart, Sears, and Costco, to name a few, are on
our prospect list for the future. They, too, can cash in on the growing demand for our wheel repair services.
Costco is now using our service when their employees damage the wheels as they are changing tires.

Retail Alliances – Car washes, detail salons, and upscale repair facilities are also great sources for potential
customers as they advertise and promote our services to their customers.

Wheel Re nishing – Provides cosmetic wheel repair and includes
wholesale or retail repair, painting, and polishing, and comprises 80%
of all wheel damage.

Wheel Straightening – Repairs bent wheels either on-site or off-site.
Today's low profile tires create a huge demand for this service which
accounts for 10%-50% of franchisees' total sales.

Remanufacturing – This is an outsourced service for most franchisees who are directed to an AWRS
remanufacturing plant or a cooperating supplier for wheels requiring structural repair, as well as machined
wheels that must be lathed. We expect many of our Franchisees to open this type of operation as demand
dictates.
Wheel Replacement – AWRS franchisees are significant distributors of
OEM remanufactured wheels held in inventory and sold as "core
exchange." We use this service in time-sensitive situations or when the
damaged wheel is not safe to repair. A core not able to be repaired can
be sold to scrap dealers for $12 – $15 each.
Other Services – This category includes
custom coloring, and chrome or
alternative chrome coating. The custom
coloring processes are completed at
either an AWRS . Remanufacturing plant                                                                                                             Before

                                                        membership into the family of reconditioning experts known as
                                                        AutoXcel United.

                                                       AutoXcel United is the world’s largest independent technician base for
                                                       paint, interior and dent repair services. As a member of AWRS you
                                                       join forces with the local AutoXcel techs and form a “Repair Unit” that
                                                       collaborates together to serve each other’s accounts within the
                                                       wholesale and retail markets. This approach solidifies our organization
                                                       as a “one stop shop”
The AutoXcel parent corporation also provides the AWRS network
member additional revenue opportunities as a claim service provider for
the service contract program known as “StayNu.” StayNu provides a
service contract to consumers for various appearance repairs. The
StayNu contract is sold to the Dealer’s customer when the customer buys
either a new car or a certified pre-owned car. The StayNu program
provides repairs for minor appearance problems to the paint (scratches,
touch-up, black-out trim), minor dents removal, interior repairs for minor
rips, tears, stains or cigarette burns to vinyl, leather and fabrics. It also
covers minor cosmetic repair to wheels.
                                            StayNu is sold by a dealership in its Finance & Insurance (“F&I”) office
                                            through the respective dealer’s F&I manager. The F&I department
                                            may sell other products in combination with StayNu such as a Tire
                                            and Wheel Road Hazard program, a wheel protectant or other
                                            programs. These programs have repairs associated with cosmetic
                                            damage or replacement for wheels that cannot be repaired or tires
                                            that have sustained catastrophic damage.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Q: What is Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists, Inc?

    A: Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists, Inc is the only international company that offers its repair service in state
    of- the-art, patent-pending, Mobile Reconditioning Centers. In addition to mobile wheel repair and
    straightening, we offer remanufacturing and OEM wheel replacement services through authorized
    franchisees or approved suppliers. We also custom color wheels to match the car's color and we have
    chrome or alternative chrome coatings available to our customer base. Our services are provided to the
    wholesale markets (pre-own dealers, auctions, and rental cars, insurance) and to the retail market through
    partners (service departments, tire stores and other auto service centers.) We are the world's largest
    mobile wheel repair company.

Q: How are you di erent from other mobile companies?

     A: The reality is other mobile companies cannot compete with Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists for a number
     of reasons.

    First, our technology and technique is the most advanced in the industry. AWRS, with its mobile trailer
    units, removes the wheel from the vehicle making repairs much more thorough, effective, and efficient.
    This process allows us to precisely match the manufacturers' original color exactly, thereby providing the
    customer with a high-grade professional result. Unlike other companies, AWRS is not hindered by
    inclement weather. The MRF is equipped with advanced patented and patent-pending technology that
    straightens wheels with the tire only partially removed. We also cure the wheel's finish with our shortwave
    curing system in less than 20 minutes which allows all wheels to be simultaneously reinstalled regardless
    of the temperature.

    Additionally, AWRS has proactively addressed health and safety concerns in the MRF, as well as the
    environmental issue of pollution. We already have switched to water-based paints in Europe to meet the
    new initiatives the European Union has imposed. This technology will be required in the United States in
    the years ahead.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS (cont.)
Q. There are many other companies o ering wheel repair franchisees or business opportunities. Are they
    really a Franchise like AWRS?

    A. AWRS is a franchise. Allow us to explain the legal di erences:

        1. Franchise Opportunities – franchising is regulated by the Federal Trade Commission. All potential
           buyers must be presented with a Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) by the franchisor. This
           UFOC will contain an entire prospectus of the franchisor, its financials, and a complete list of
           current franchisees and their contact information. Generally speaking, potential buyers' overall
           success is much greater with this type of regulated business opportunity. You cannot be conned if
           you do your homework.



        2. General Business Opportunity – While there are state laws regulating business opportunities, most
           start-up companies generally follow this route because they are undercapitalized. Since one does
           not have to follow any type of Federal Law, less money is required up front to actually sell a
           business opportunity. Many companies selling a business opportunity violate State and Federal
           laws and will rely on inexperienced investors to buy without checking it out.




        3. Training and Equipment O erings – These opportunity sellers prey on the naïve buyer. They will
           reason with the buyer that buying anything other than their offering is a waste of money. They do
           not supply a list of references, their contact information, nor names of one or two of their close
           friends. Their training program is limited and they typically supply inferior equipment to complete
           job requirements. One is doomed to fail as they are not equipped to compete against a company
           such as Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists.




                                                                                                                     www.AWRSwheelrepair.com

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS (cont.)

Q. What if I want to buy one of your franchises but the territory is sold?

     A. We offer alternative territories in as close proximity as possible to your first choice. If you prefer, you
     could be placed on a waiting list for said territory. A number of buyers, however, are willing to relocate to
     different parts of the country where our services are not yet available and demand for AWRS is high.

Q. Why pay a royalty?

     A. A royalty payment will be the most important payment you make every month. It maintains exclusivity
     which keeps other AWRS members from soliciting in your territory, and it secures branding as name
     recognition is the key for you to build maximum equity. Furthermore, it provides you with the rights to all
     the new technology, training, and programs created to maximize equity within the entire system.

Q. What are the costs involved in opening this business?

     A. Like any other business start-up, you will have incidental expenses that could include registering a
     corporation, securing insurance, traveling to the training center, etc. The cost of buying the franchise
     includes the franchise fee (variable), start-up kit (included in the franchise fee of the larger territories), a
     wheel straightening machine, and the Mobile Reconditioning Facility. There are no other fees paid to
     AWRS.
Q. When purchasing a Mobile Reconditioning Facility, should I buy a truck or a trailer?

     A. Either option will work just fine. Some markets may be better suited to trucks as they require a
     smaller turning radius. This may be a better option when traffic is heavily congested and/or dealership
     parking lots are small.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS (cont.)

   Q. What type of tow vehicle do I need if I purchase a trailer?

     A. We strongly suggest a 3/4-ton pick-up truck such as a Ford F-250. This type of vehicle is designed
     to pull heavier loads and can support the tongue weight of the 6,500-pound trailers. You can use a ½-
     ton pick-up but you will need to make some upgrades to the rear suspension as the wear and tear will
     be accelerated. We have an economy trailer unit that can be towed with a ½ ton truck.

   Q. Will AWRS assist me in opening the territory?

     A. Yes. We will send a Field Operations Manager/Master Technician into your market for 4-5 days
     immediately after you complete our ten-day training class. During this time, our manager will make
     sales calls with you to help establish your initial base of customers and build the foundation of your
     business. He will be available to assist you in your initial demonstrations and answer sales and technical
     questions on an on-going basis.


   Q. Can I operate this business as an absentee owner?
     A. We do not recommend this approach as it has not proven to be an effective way to build our type of
     business. What most owners do is operate as a technician in the early stages of the growth of the
     business and move into a management role as additional MRFs and technicians are added. You can be a
     full time owner that relies on employees to repair the wheels while managing the techs and all the sales
     activities.

   Q. How many MRFs can I have in my territory?
     A. We do not place a limit on the number of MRFs you can utilize. We have found that most territories
     can support at least one MRF for every 250,000 people. For the typical $36,000 territory, we anticipate
     that a minimum of three MRFs can be successfully operated.
