I have a C230 Sport Kompressor and 17" 7 Spoke single rims. I hit a massive pothole and consequently blew out my tire and cracked my rim. I was referred to a rim repair specialist and I am weighing my options. Do you think it would be sufficient to repair the crack? I have heard of doing it, but am nervous about what the outcome will be. These people came highly recommended by our top import auto repair specialist in town. Any comments appreciated. Thanks!

Depending on what they will charge it will probably be better to buy a replacement rim. If for no other reason the rim may give you trouble a few years down the road. You can probably purchase a used rim to match around $150.00. Even if the wheelwright charges $70.00. The peace of mind could be worth the $80.00 you'll spend.

Hi,
I just registered today and I would suggest to either let it stay in the garage or replace.
Peace of mind.
