July 23, 2007I went 4x4ing this weekend and mashed up a rim on a rock.
I didn't think it is too bad, but the tire store said it is trash.
It is only $50 to replace it with a new one...However I am changing to a new set of rims when these tire wear out, in about a year or less.
I hate to buy a new rim to set on the rear bumber as a spare for a year and then take 20 cents on the dollar on the used market for it. Cheap I guess.
You think I can bang it out and have it hold air and not damage the tire bead(the tire store said bead damage will happen).
This pic is with 13 pounds of air in it. It DID take airing up to 30psi without problems, and drove home 100 miles without problems.
