Re: Rim beyond repair?

Whether or not the rim can be repaired will depend more on what it is made from and the manufacturing process than just about anything else.

But looking at it, I'd say it's a cast alloy rim that can't be repaired. But I've been wrong before.

Re: Rim beyond repair?

So are forged wheels easier to repair?

Re: Rim beyond repair?

steelies are repairable, can be bent or welded at desperate times, alloy wheels arent repairable and if they are repaired they arent safe. if you a hit a curb, pothole, anthing of that kind the damage will just get worse, assuming the tire doesnt blow out right then and there

Re: Rim beyond repair?

thats a crack to you?!?!?!?! man that is repairable imo...i had a few sets that cracked on me and i went to a shop to get them done...the first guy told me it wasnt repairable. i left and went to honda to ask my coworkers where our oem rims got repaired at...guess what? same place. so the GM and i go together with a few sets of rims, with mines also, and dropped it off. the next day we went again to pick it up and wow, what a surprise, its fixed.

anything is fixable because there is always a different way and technique to handle them.

Re: Rim beyond repair?

find a good wheel shop and ask how things are run first...if they just fill it in with bondo (some shops do this) than its not worth it. if you can find one that welds, or fills in with the same bonding metal, thats a winner...its not gonna be cheap tho
