van turbo wheel...use, replace, or WW question

I am getting ready to rebuilt this van turbo i got have some questions. I took it partially apart and just going over the parts. There is no scaring on the wall from the the wheel but i noticed on the tips some material missing. I do not know what a new van turbo looks like to compare. so check out the pic and give me an opinion. should i use as is, replace it with another factory van turbo wheel or use the WW i have new in the box here?

yes, go thru with rebuilding it, and i would install the w.w., since you have in possession. The wheel came in contact with the housing, scoring it, the way it did. Grabbing ahold of the wheel now, you probably have side/side play...new bushings will fix it.

i do have side to side play. I do not feel any scoring on the walls or see any...I would have thought it would have left a mark. I do have a complete rebuild kit to fix everything i believe.

nah, you wouldnt feel any scoring, since the wheel "smoothed" everything out, hitting it...
