    Default repairable?

    Does anyone who knows more than me on the subject think the battered wheel in the pics here is repairable?

    Personally I wouldn't risk an alloy wheel with that much damage

    A decent refurb company could probably mend that but the mobile types have limited kit so I wouldnt trust them to do it

    thanks for the opinions guys. If they go cheap enough I might buy them and then try find one to replace the buckled one. They will have to be dirt cheap though!

    There was a feature in a Total Vauxhall Mag abit back and they did mend this and had all the gear like welders, lathes, ovens and balancing kit. As said you need a decent workshop based refurb company to sort that

    but for the price you'd pay to get one wheel fixed.. wouldn't it be cheaper just buying a new one?

    If it was a VXR or Irmscher wheel then a repair will be cheaper. If it is one of Halfords specials then yes a new one might be cheaper
