    Default Welding Wheels! Y or N ?

    Guys,

    Had a strange vibration from the front, got the fronts rebalanced just incase! Vibe still there, so dropped it into garage. Was then told it was due to my rear tyre deforming due to it being damaged caused by me running it almost flat!!
    They are 235/35/19 falkens, & tbh, i did not even notice it was flat!!.
    To cut a long story short, the tyre had deflated because my rim has a 15mm crack on the inner rim, probably caused by the f##king s$$t conditions of the roads.

    Would you guys recommend welding, or just get a replacement?

    Already spent £250 on possibly the last pair of faulkens in the country, the rim damaged one had only done 10k miles & as good as new!!


    Cheers.

    As long as its a professional repair then why not? Although I'd then be looking for a spare to replace it with at a later date.

    Somewhere like this - http://www.lepsons.com/
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
