or Repair / Recondition
a damaged or bent aluminum wheel with a new one is becoming
less of an option these days. With the escalating cost of
these new wheels, the owners and their insurance carriers
are looking for alternatives. The obvious answer is kwicksilver.
A bent wheel can generally be repaired for $75 - $200. A cosmetically
damaged wheel can be reconditioned for $50 - $175. The work
can be performed in 15 - 45 minutes. The price of performance
OEM rims range from approximately $400 - $2,000 each. Aftermarket
aluminum alloys can cost even more. The numbers clearly favor
repair over replacement. It's a win-win solution - both shop
owner and customer benefit.
