Should I buy my damaged wheel??

Recommended Posts

Quick question........as I posted when I got my car Tuesay, the dumb-ass off loading my car scratched/gouged the wheel. I was told I can probably buy the damaged wheel but have to pay the "core" fee........which is $50. Should I buy it and is the damage repairable?? I was thinking of getting it as an extra as I want to eventually powder-coat a set black. I attached a couple of pics of the rim.

 

Thanks................

yes, buy it. A new rim from ford is around 700. for 1. You can get that rim fixed for about 100. and your still ahead, and you have a full size spare instead of a inflater kit.

Buy it!!!! you are most likely going to have larger damage than that very soon with these rims/tyres! You might then have a bit more empathy for your delivery driver ;)
