Bent rims??

I was looking on craigslist for some rims for my 02 mustang. I found some that came off a gt but two of them are a little bent. I need you guys help. Should I buy them? Can they be fixed or is it no big deal? The guy said they hold air without a problem. Thanks guys! Please help me

There's no way to fix a bent rim is there? He said it wasn't bad but I still don't know. Heres a picture of them

They can be fixed if they aren't to bad but normally cost more than it's worth. Do a google search for rim repair.

Re: Bent rims??

you can get rims like that for about 100 each new or less so not very expensive.

I'm right in the middle of baton rouge and new Orleans. No idea on price. I'm not gonna use them. I'm gonna go and check them out in the next couple of days. They r in my dads garage. In boxes in the corner since 2004. Make an offer. Don't know what it will cost to ship them.
