It would depend what sort of rim it is, but i'm sure you would be able to get it fixed, most are able to be...

s**t i let one of my mates drive my car, he always pays to be the second driver when we go to Heathcote for the drags. The prick runs better times than me too!!!
I can totally trust him and he only does to my car, what i do to it, down the strip.....

Yeah, common for less skilled drivers to stuff up that rim. Silly lady who owned this car from new scratched the fook out of my front passenger one. While the others all look pretty good.

heres jsut one co. that does wheels repairs saw them on bright ideas and the best thing is they come to. obviously there will be more people out there that can fix these sorts of things but i thought that this would be a good starting point.

I scuffed my stock alloy in that positon the other day in Midland Perth. I've owned the car 5 years and never done it before. Had to be the f**k worlds tallest gutter that did it, it'd give the Sears tower a run for it's money. A lack of concentration just once, is all it takes, and there goes your rim! :evil:

I only trust one or two of my very closest mate driving my car when im not entirely upto the task, ie too tired or something preventing me from driving..

Not saying they do it without me in the car, and its usually late at night or afternoon when not much traffic is around, in peak hour its me n only me as i always worry people will go ino back of me - i know i can stop, but can they? :|

Reason I didn't get alloys when I first got the car was because I knew I'd hit gutters. I even managed to buckle a steel wheel when I veered into a gutter doing fishies.

Thanx for that mate! now im happy cause i know it can be fixed and i wont have to cut laps with a s**t rim :D now all i got to do is find my ex mate who seems to have dropped off the face of the earth lately for some unknown reason.

I dont suppose it would be cheap?
