I'd be interested but I'm in the UK. Pretty good value if they can be fixed up! Who would kerb a car like that though? ?

Previous owers did this. My take this car was a rental at some point because it is in a rough shape exterior wise. Getting a full respray and love she deserves. I opted for a custom wheels so these are up for grabs.

I'd put them on a balancing machine and see if they are still round before spending money making them pretty.

Let's keep the unnecessary comments out of this thread. Wheels are heavily scratched but are perfectly straight.

After investigating it seems wheel refurbishment companies can correct buckled wheels anyway. I watched a youtube just now. They heat the rim up and use a little jack thing to push out the flat spot or dent. They spin the wheel on machine to check as they go until its perfect.

At this price, the OPs wheels are well worth getting repaired, especially if its only cosmetic work needed, although I don't think they charge a lot if they need straightening either.

Wheels are one of my worries when out driving and parking, always a risk of kerbing them, so to have an affordable not new or perfect set would make me feel much more relaxed. They could be your sacrificial set ! Shame they're in America 😠

Op, if not too cheeky but how much did you pay for the car ?

A respray will be quite costly, and new wheels

Vinyl wrapping is cheaper that respray and more consistent predictable outcome.
I would do it in one of the glowing satin pearl finishes, maybe some mean green and do the rims a dark smoky bronze :)

$23500. I do bodywork myself. On a car that all panels comes off and plastic and fiberglass is relatively easy. No metal flash rusting or corrosion protection to worry about.

I wouldn't want a bent repaired rim myself. I would scrap the thing and move on.
