Default Is this rim repairable? Pic in inside.



Looks pretty bad, but is it repairable? And how much do you guys think it will be?

I would say it is repairable ... I have seen worse get repaired ... but, it will not be as strong as it once was

Yup, I had a stock Wrex Wrim as bad. Wasn't holding air. Local rim repair shop fixed it to 92% of OEM. (ok on inside) Not so lucky w/ their work on an outside rim ding on a Kosei.

Good luck,
N

Call your insurance agent and ask them who they use to repair rims. I had a Claims magazine that listed shops that'll repair w/ return shipping for ~$100. I don't have the magazine anymore though.
Google "wheel repair"
