[DML] Re: Rim Repair

Bondo is not the way to fix the rim. It will not last. In fact if you
read the directions you are not supposed to use it over 1/16 " thick.
The "proper" way to repair the rim is to take the wheel off, have the
tire dismounted, and send the rim to a wheel repair center. They will
weld it up, machine it, straighten it, and balance it. They can even
repaint and clear-coat. Another alternative you might consider is one
of the vendor exchange programs. You send them your rims and you get
another, repainted set. It is possible that there is not only a gouge
in the edge of the rim but it is also bent. Besides, if the tire shop
has to put a wheel weight right on your repair it will fall off.
