A couple of weeks ago, I nailed a pothole at speed and buckled one of my Rage wheels. It wasn't so severely damaged that it was immediately obvious and also didn't cause any vibration at speed.

Anyway, I purchased a refurbished wheel on the forum, and replaced both fronts tyres as I felt one had a slight bulge and may have been liable to fail as a result.

However, I popped into a local alloy wheel repair shop that has recently opened up and showed him the damaged rim. He seemed confident he could repair it. And for £40 quid. I'm certainly not going to trust him to do this for a number of reasons, but surely this is a horrifically dangerous business?

He told me "even if its cracked I can fixed it". This is absurd right?
