looks like crap
for 176 dollars it should be somewhat finished
So a couple a weeks ago I posted asking about wheel repair for my 17" rs's...
Thayer had a 1" crack on the inner barrel but still held air...
Well, I took it to watts automotive I Spokane, seemed like a good shop from the post....
Well, this is what I got back.. Seems to me the could have smoothed it out and lose some wheel waits.... Btw, the price was $176.... Opinions plz

I've powder coated a few sets of wheels that look like this when they are fixed. You don't really want to go in and remove any weld, that would make it thinner and potentially weaken the wheel. Best bet is just to leave it, you'll never see it on the back side anyways.

meister is absolutely correct about leaving the weld. Check out this link. I did the prep on one of my wheels and had a pro with 15 years of tig experience do the weld. Cost me $22. That weld does look pretty funky for a crack though.

I have had wheels repaired there for years, one of those needed a weld. It came back kinda similar...but judging by the weld, looks like you had a good size crack. Mine too was on the back side of the wheel...all I cared about is that they balanced somewhat ok and did not look like ass. Any pics of the wheel before the repair?
