hi all,
has anyone done or heard of re- rolling the inside of wheels?
I have one VE SSV rim that has a ding on the inner lip. its just a flat spot 40mm-50mm on the inside lip of the rim. Somone has told me that i can get the wheel re -rolled for approx $50 - $100? has anyoen heard of this process? is the cost about right? any other solutions??
cheers

VZ GTO. VS LS1.
Yep that price sounds about right. Alloy wheels with flat spots can be re-rolled and the flats worked out of it. They are basically spun slowly on a big lathe with a series of rollers exerting pressure on the inside of the rim to work it back out. Just look in your phone book or do a google search for 'wheel repairers' in your area.
