Bent Wheel

Hi All
My ADV.1 wheel has a bent front (outer) lip. Is this fixable? Also can someone recommend a repair shop in NJ for a repair.
Thanks
Jan

I would say nop. You don’t know if the integrity of the rim is still ok. I wouldn’t do it. By the way the tyre carcass is also damaged.

It can be fixed. I had a cracked rim that got welded. Also others got straightened. I drove on the welded wheel for more than a year. The only question is the quality. I had good and bad results from different shops.
