Got some not too bad road rash except it is also a little on the spoke
of the five spoke AMG wheel.
I was told that the alloy used prevents repair??
Has anyone had one repaired; by whom?
At 965.00 new and 750.00 quoted for used, I hope someone can repair it.
My brother had a seven spoke AMG Alloy on his C220 Coupé replace under
warranty by an MB dealer last month.
He scraped the rim on the front nearside had it repaired but it still
didn't look right. they put a kind of resin over the damage but after a
couple of week it seems to go transprant and you can see the damage
If those wheels are painted, then I don't see why
they cannot be refinished. No matter what the alloy,
it will accept an epoxy filler. Then it's just sanding
and painting. If the wheel was damaged to the point
that it needs to be welded to repair, then the alloy
could make a difference.
Don't know where you're located, but here in the USA
I've used the Wheel Collision Center in PA. It ran
me around $140, but that was probably 10 years ago.
You just ship them the wheel.
They've been around for a long time and I'm sure
they can tell you if the wheel can be refinished. Check
