Question Can this damage be repaired? Maybe eddie at tirerack can answer

Its a dent on the inside. The dent causes the seal between the tire and rim to break, thereby not keeping air in the tire.

Can this be fixed? Would it cost to much?

Finally, do you think I can get anything from a metal junker?? At this point Im thinking this Type 44 is worth less.

You can get that fixed...

I had bent rims worse than that and a wheel repair place fixed them for about $110 each.

WOW thats great news. I thought I would have to give it away!

But are you guys sure? When it was on the car just before the the tire lost air, I good feel rattling due to the flat spot it caused. Damn...

Dont know why no one here is willing to repair it! Taken it to several german wheel shops and they said its unrepairable due to it being an alloy and they cant bang out the dent. They said the rim would suffer from hair line cracks at the least as a result of banging. They said they can only do cosmetic repairs, like removing scratches, dings etc...

How are these things repaired back in the states? Not sure if I caan recoup the money for a repair after I try to sell...

Thanks
