Most wheel repair places should be able to fix that. Not sure about your area.

That sucks but I'm sure it can be fixed by a good wheel shop.

Might I suggest buying Goodyear Eagle F1 tires next time? The tread looks almost identicle to those. They also come with this nice rim protector on the side. It's a rubber flange that sticks out (it's a nice radius so it looks normal) at the rims edge. Then if you scrape the rim against a curb (wife did this a couple times in mine), it protects them and you just lose some rubber from the flange.

Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately I just got these. Got a very good deal on these wheels and tires in near perfect condition with the almost new tires. Main concern now is, can the wheel be fixed?

I've seen worse things fixed on wheels. I've never personally fixed any wheels, but take it to a wheel shop and I bet it'll get fixed no problem.

That can definitely be fixed. The rim will just have to be sanded down and reshaped, then the wheel will need to be refinished. Check your yellow pages for a wheel repair shop.

There is a national company here in Raleigh called RIM GUARD. You should check and see if they have one in your area. That rim is totally fixable.

What state are you in? There's a place in PA, I think its called WCC (Wheel somethin something). You can send yours in and give you a replacement, or tell them to fix yours. Just Google it. I took my stock bullit wheel there (bent lip, New Jersey pot hole need I say more) long story short u can't tell it was damaged.

I say you stay cool, don't freak out, remain calm, and know that the next time you do something, you've got leverage!
