  • Are these still safe?

    I just acquired these wheels a few weeks ago and found this after dismounting one of the front tires. There are no cracks or paint chips whatsoever. This is a forged throwing star wheel.






    So what do you guys think? Does this need to be repaired? If not, will it affect balancing?

    Thanks for any response.

    Throw a tire on it and see how it balances. If it balances weird, have it repaired. That is not a lot of damage. I have a buddy who had alower brake caliper bolt come loose and when he hit the brakes the caliper swung up and put a gash about 3 inches long and 1/2 inch wide in an aluminum wheel. He had it welded up and it only required 0.25 grams more weight than the other wheels.

      Have it fixed before you refinish them, it won't cost that much and you'll have piece of mind.
