    Get a rim from eBay and have the alignment checked.

    about an 8 to 10 inch chunk gone from the lip so i doubt its fixable but you never know those rim guys are good at that shit.

    If it affects the tire sealing on the rim, you should just get a new rim. Don't want to risk a blowout...But I haven't had to get a rim fixed. Find a shop with a good reputation I guess would be your best bet..Let us know how it turns out for future references....

    My buddies old camaro had OEM z06 rims that were repaired once. Never knew anything was wrong till one day it was leaking air bad
    Ended up being a hairline crack by the spoke. If it were me i would just find a new one.
