They can be refurbed if you like.
A inspection would indicate if they were safe to repair or not.

Automotion and Spray force both do Refurbs,
i guess you would have to take it
to them to see if it can be done.

Hope that helps.

i had a look before and its slightly buckled, hes only going to be using them for a short while until he saves up and gets some other alloys, i might take it down to sprayforce for him and see if it can be sorted

Wouldnt like to say.

As there is always a risk of it cracking
when being re shaped so i believe.

Saying that i have seen worse repaired.

Good luck.

If the wheel is ok, ie, tyre seals on the bead ok, there are no vibrations and it balances up ok, I wouldnt worry about it (if its temporary).

If it doesnt seal on the bead, junk the wheel, if it wont balance or gives a vibration and you cant live with it - junk the wheel.
