call hard core, I am sure they have a email address.

Just a bend is one thing but it looks to br cracked as well. I would search for a new rim to replace that one.

I did a small test spot on a large chip in the wheel. I did one thin coat over the chip and here is how the paint matches up. Click the image to open in full size.


Do u guys think i should sandblast all the rims and paint them, sand and paint, or chemically strip and paint???

Sand Blast (Unless its an aluminum wheel then doesn't it have to be like cold stripped or something) recommended. Don't do it the way I did mine, hand sanded with more than enough paint thinner over the course of three days then touched up with sharpie.

Edit: Lol but if you look at my picture it doesn't look too bad for being such a crappy ass job
