    Exclamation Bad hit on wheels

    Guys, I'm currently thinking about buying some wheels, but one was very bad hit, what you think, is there any possibility to fix that?

    yes a bit of metallic filler, moocho rubbing down then a paint - good as new.

    I would think thats so small and so near the edge you could just mask a few inches of rim and spray it ford stardust silver - will be almost invisible.

    Thx for opinions, so you think it's not impossible to fix, any idea how much would cost?

    most of us probably have no idea what anything costs in Romania ! In the UK £40 for a smart repair, maybe £60 - £80 for a full wheel refurbish.

    I paid £60 for a full refurb - or you can buy an e-tech kit for £25.

    the kit does about 4 wheels should you do it again.

    Come on you guys, I didn't wanted to hear from you prices in Romania

    Of course I needed to know prices in UK so I can get an idea, lol

    It does look easily repairable yes - unless there's a crack going into the width of the rim, then you'd probably have to get a new one.
    Allow wheel refurb specialists usually do an amazing job if they think it's fixable.
