I'm sure you will find many threads discussing wheel repair here.

Don't forget that "for a good price" and "properly repaired" can easily be mutually exclusive. There are some places you really have to stay away from. One place that often gets good reviews is Carcone's.

I've gone to Wheel Wizards twice with cracked/damaged wheels only to be told they were scrap. I know they can be fixed. They might do a nice job refinishing, but in my experience they won't touch structural damage.

Are they fairly affordable? And considering the machine they have in their pictures they should be able to even make rims hehe.

If your wheel rims are damaged they can be repaired. Many times car owners do not get their vehicle wheel rims repaired because they simply do not know they can be repaired or they don't know where to take them for repair. You can find great auto reconditioning specialist who can repair your wheel rims in no time. They will look like new rims for a fraction of the time and cost of getting new ones. So, where can you get damaged wheel rims repaired?If your wheel rims are scratched, dented, scraped or need attention in some way you can get them repaired. A lot of times our vehicles wheel rims receive damages while we are parking and get too close to the curb or if we drive to close around a curbed corner. Most people either drive around with the damaged wheel rim or try to buy new ones. But, driving around with damaged wheel rims is not good for your wheels and they look bad causing the rest of your vehicle to look bad. And if you are thinking you will just buy new wheel rims I hope you have a lot of money saved up, because they are expensive. The best thing to do, which many people don't know can be done, is getting your damaged wheel rims repaired.
