There are a few wheel repair biz places in Santa Ana, e.g. Mag Masters.

Would you like to see a pic of the weld 22's off my old truck that are sitting in my back yard?

Good luck

not sure what kind of wheel brand you got, but iv found by the time you mount /dismount tire, waiting for rim to get repaired it was easier and cheaper just to buy a new one and swap tire. now if you have some "KUSTOM" wheel that's not readily available at most rim shops then maybe go the fix it route...2cents

Try these guys : Coast to Coast Intl. 1-800-873-3746

They do all sorts of stock wheels, fast shipping etc. Dunno if your Welds are a stock type on something, but they also do repair and have several outlets in SoCal.

Good luck!

I seriously doubt that the 2 pc. Weld wheels have enough load rating to handle 35" tires.

The reason I asked is because certain weld wheels are notorious for cracking. I have a set that one wheel cracked. I was advised by all the fix it shops that as soon as they fix it, they will most likely crack somewhere else, and so on and so on.. So I now have a set of three thousand dollar 22's that are worthless..

"Worthless" might a stretch RD. I'm sure a scrap yard/recycling center would give you a few cents on the dollar for them. :D

Then you'd only be out $2,980! :D

C 2 C does not do repairs, only refinish, they have ZERO to do with aftermarket alloy wheels.

Weld has been BK a few times and they will not warranty any structural issues, ie cracks, ie RD's BS that he went through.

Post a pic of the crack so I can see if we can repair it.
