Dont know what brand rim this is , real or replica, but depending on how much that place wants for a fix it may make better sense to buy a new rim instead.

The only place that remotely carries these is GTAtires. But they have them in 18x8 +40 5x100 for $269+tax, but I need 18x8 +35 5x120.

To repair it will cost me:

$130 turnaround = 3 days - Union Rim Repair
$200 turnaround = 2 days - Inspired Autosport [what I'm leaning towards]

If Nick @ GTA Tires can't get me one in my size, I'm just going to have it repaired.

That's way too far for me. Everything I've been looking at is north york-ish.

If there's something in the west end I'm game for it.

considering I'll be going after work which would lead to rush hour traffic. That 49 minutes will easily turn into an hour plus.

I can get to North York in 20-25 minutes - so ya Aurora is a bit of a stretch.

I have the same situation back couple years ago on 404. I regret spend $500 to fix my two rims because bent rim will leak no matter how good they fix.

But that's why they have a rim sealer so it doesn't leak. Just ask for it when installing the tire.

^^ I have rim sealer on (a lot) - the rim isn't leaking any air at all. Just wobbles.

You're leaning towards a place that's almost double the cost? =\

Better be hellah mother f*cking good. Your rims are nice but they're no $4K BBS's. Why spend $200 if you can have the same job done for $70 less and just have to wait an extra day? Either way you're waiting a couple days. Just sayin'.

I was contemplating having some wheels refinished but idk if I wanna spend $130+ a wheel. =\
