[DML] Re: Rim Repair

Do not use Bondo for a wheel repair, it can fall out and cause a 
serious wheel balance problem.  Find a good wheel repair shop, they can 
actually fill in the area with a weld and reshape the wheel, should 
cost about $150-$250 depending on how bad the damage is.  I have had 
wheels on some of my other cars redone, and they come back looking 
better than new.
