The title says it all.
Any contacts?
Who to go to preferably and who to steer clear of.

A mate of mine had some rims repaired years ago by a guy in a shed at the back of Cobitty I believe. He can't remember his name or number though.

Thanks in advance :)

as far as I am aware it is now illegal to repair alloy wheels that need welding, not sure about steels. But there is always the backyard. Someone please corect me if I'm wrong.

i don't think it is illegal unless tyrepower sent mine off to someone illegally, wouldn't reccomend it though as the crack re-appeared as stress marks only a week later

Widetread in Melbourne told me it was illegal, and they had nothing to gain by it.

This is just cosmetic damage, gutter rash. Surely that can't be illegal.

Cracked rims however, that's a different story.
