I hit a pothole sunday night and it bent the inside of one of my wheels, and it leaks air. It really ****ed me off because I just got these wheels from a member on these boards last year. Now I have the old ****ty looking ones back on.... Can it be repaired do you think?

Not fixable. Bending that cast back will risk cracking it.

The place we get remanufactured wheels fix worse then that but they donít do it for customers, they do a wheel exchange. I would call around and see if there is a place like that around you. It is a bit pricey but it is worth a shot.

If you did it in MD trying getting money out of the county. I hit one in Baltimore County and my dad got them to pay 1/2 the price for a new rim, from the dealer appox $500, with the $250 I got a new one and had money left over.

hit it with a hammer. If you crack the rim it wont matter anyway cuz you would have gotten anew anyway. Ive bent a few rims back into shape. None from a GA, but it worth a shot.

my work will fix it for $50 you heat it up with a torch and bend it back
do it everyday all the time
pot holes in detroit are horrible

wee fix people 22's 24's and 26's for $150 and they pay it because its cheaper than buying a new rim
