check with the manufacturer since some have warranties on their products. even if they don't they may be able to recommend someplace.

looks a little deep. They may be able to polish it out. but you have to polish all four rims.

My uncle and I put some JB weld onto my cousins rim. His friend gave him 3 perfect rims and one was bent since it was hit. We bent it to be straight again but then a gap/crack appeared frown

Fixed one problem, but made another..



So what did we do we used JB Weld.. it should run you about $4.00.. thumbsup at your local Home Depot, Walmart, Pepboys, etc..

its sandable and also can take heat like crazy. if you read the package it will tell you some uses people used for it.

but heck JB weld will only fill in that stuff for you and thats about it frown

read more about them if you want

As their motto is.. "Don't scrap it; JB it!"
