Hi guys, the 17" rims on my EF XR8 have seen better days, and I was curious about how much it would cost to get them repaired?

They have scuffs around the lip and up the spokes

Anyone have any idea how much this costs?

Most crash shops will do wheels. Shop around and have the tyres removed before taking them in.

I recently had to buy 2 new rims after a stack... ended up not being worth getting them repaired.

Cost was $275 per rim repair
or $295 per rim new.

See my point? But bear in mind that was for two-tone rims and the reason it was so exxy was because it would need repainting.
