    If they are aluminum there are steel inserts for just this type of thing. IIRC you will have to drill and taper all of the lug holes to accept the new inserts. I know some mickey thompson wheels come with them and I believe that MT offers a kit of sorts.

    It is not really a repair kit. It does wonders for this problem though. The idea was for circle track/baja type guys to have light weight wheels that were bolted on through steel for strength. It is easily modified to any aluminum wheel though. As long as the holes are nor wallered out any bigger than the inserts you are fine.
