I had a quote in the past and it was around $150 to repair and repaint a bend rim, not sure how much something like that would run.

Where you located? I have a complete set of wheels/tires that came off the car with under 3000 miles (tires still look new). I was planning to put them on eBay but I'm not up for shipping them right now (find boxes,buy tape, pack, schelp to UPS, yada, yada)

Just file it down, fill any low spots with bondo or JB weld, touch it up with touch up paint you can get from your dealer. It will be easier with the tire off.
Or, its time for THESE!

I'm in Mass. If you're asking if I would sell all four wheels for $350, I'd have to say no. I could get $550-$600 on eBay based on what I've seen.

Hey,

You should just buy a new wheel and tire, and keep this one for a fullsize spare. It doesn't look structurally messed up, only cosmetically. File it down. Touch up paint. No biggie.

Patrick,

Find a local wheel repair service. In the DC area I can get a wheel like that fixed perfectly for $75.

Get a list and contact customers from 18 months ago. Many fixes will deteriorate after a year or so.

Those are awesome! Suby Dude has Rotas also, not sure who has the better deals.

repair your rim and use the OE rims for winter, and the hawt ones for summer
