    Call Weld Racing and see what they have to say about warranty's, etc. Maybe they can fix it for cheap. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I put a scratch and gouge in one of my welds and they told me that they could repair it for $100. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    well i called them and they said there is really nothing that can be done about it other than some inserts put in, they are sending me one so i can send to the guy and see if they work. if anyone gets any ideas let me know, i was thinking of a shank lug nut of some sort that you could drill the rim out and the shanks would seat the rim. i dunno. let me know what you guys think. thanks, chris

    I sent back my 16.5 x 9.75's to get them polished by them since the wheels had gotten pits, small scratches, etc. in them and they charged only $80 to fully polish 4 rims to new condition. I was very happy with them. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    [/ QUOTE ] Yeah, they told me $100 to repair a rim no matter whats wrong with it. Sounds good to me. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif Welds are expensive at first but they have great customer service, warranties, etc... unlike any other rim manufacturer. Reminds me of snap on or mac tools, expensive at first but great service. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
