Today, on the way home from work, I follow an Auto Parts truck form Keystone Automotive. The truck has a banner, "Body panels, cooling system parts,tailights, and "Remanufactured wheels."
What the HELL is a remanufactured wheel?:confused:

Take any aluminum wheel and TIG it back in shape.....

YEARS ago a neighbor friend up north had a custom chrome shark that always put mine to shame even new....and so he wrecked it with some fancy fine spoked aluminum wheels on it....the wheel was about totalled, and NLA...

so he takes it to a wheel shop....I forget the name, but off US rt1 in Maryland as I recall...and they fixed it....looked totally OEM

it was typical cast aluminum as per most of them......

so YES, it's possible, but as he said....youreallydon'twanaknowabouttheprice....


so YES but where/who is willing to do the job today....GAFL.....

Good Assed Freeking Luck.....U need it....

Liability what with lawyers has run most shops doing jack outta business anymore....

big brother watching over YOU....
