factory 20 rim repair

I bought a set of OEM 20's and they got shipped to me. they put the lug nut covers on the rim side not taped down so they bounced around and scratched the rim. Not only does it look like crap but what do i do to keep it from corroding like around the lug nut holes where the lug nut has bit into the rim? this sucks, im so mad. pay all this money for rims and they get effed up so in the end i pay more like usual. anyone got any tips or tricks or am i screwed?

i have already called a few places and waiting to hear back on pricing. Im going to take a drive and blow off some steam. hopefully y'all will have some good new for me when I get back so I dont blow my top

here is a picture of the worst rim(one rim looks perfectly fine, 2 have fine scratches and then this rims thats effed) if your wondering why im mad

Awesome, how much did that run you. He got insurance on shipping them so hopefully they will cover it.

Travis it cost $73.21 for the repair, it was worth it to me. Insurance is good but I would bet it will take forever to collect, make sure you get pictures, I lost a claim due to the way it was packaged they stated it was out of their control how it was packaged and they would only cover it if the damage to the box showed the item was damaged by shipping, good luck on that one.

Im trying to get this figured out, trust me if i could I wouldnt have. These were supposed to be in mint condition with only 35k miles on the rims and the tires like new. My oem wheels have 30k on them and they look brand new. these, far from it as you can tell by how many times they have been torqued down by the lugs. I bought these a while ago and they just got here and im leaving to go out of the country where at best i will be able to check email once or twice a day. I just dont even know what to do

Went to a body shop today. They are a big name and did good work on my brothers mustang. He said he wouldn't touch them. Got a few names of wheel repair specialist so I guess I will be making some calls when I get home. The guy is contacting UPS to see about insurance. He had them insured and says they packaged them like that so we will see.

You could always get them powdercoated! Except that it is not free.

Rims

I just one of my rims split down by the bead. The wanted to much to replace the rim,,so I bought four new rims for the price of one stock for my F250 KR. I've got three good ones that I would be happy to sell. I,m on vacation now will be back home on the 29th. I would be happy to sell them to get them out of my garage. Can take pictures when I get home. We can talk about price, a fair one for the both of us.
