So as some of you might have seen I got in an accident about 2 weeks ago, and 2 of my rims got pretty beat up. I got one of them back today and it looks brand new, but the other one wasn't repairable according to them because the spoke is kinda damaged so I called up the manufacturer these are 20" Boyd Coddington Rodders btw and they said they might be able to fix it if I take it to them which I'm going to do this week, but if they can't be fixed they can make me a new one for $800 which is a pretty penny just for one rim but I understand that they're custom made. So what would you do ? Suck it up and spend $800 for one rim knowing that for a couple hundred more you can get a complete set of other wheels. I've always wanted some 20" 01/02 reps but with the amount I've spent so far I would rather not spend so much money on wheels . :smt089

If you have the cabbage get the new ones and sell the old ones to get a little back on them. That's what I would do. And who doesn't want brand new wheels!

There are not many choices for our lug pattern that aren't common. So it's either very expensive to get a new set, or the typical, common wheel.

If it were me, I'd probably get mines fixed and maybe spend the money elsewhere. Then again, that's just me.

Or if you really want some nice wheels go ahead and get a set of the new SM 20" 03-04 Reps.

But who would want to buy just 3 rims and one damaged one? I thought about your idea but then realized it would be tough selling an incomplete set.

Well the thing is I don't mind getting them fixed IF they can be saved but if they can't my options are dish out $800 so they can make me a new one or get a completely new set that's my whole issues.

I doubt even Boyd will fix that. But those cleaned and polished could look good with the right tire and stance. So I would say worth the 800, strip off the black and polish them up. What's the specs width and offset?
