In the Uk there are various rim repair companies that aim to refresh a kerbed wheel, even one with slight dents in it, all for far less than the cost of a whole new wheel. Look around, I'm sure they're out there. Alternatively there are companies that will completely revitalise battered wheels, buit they tend to involve sending the rim away, which seems a bit of a pain! >#2 If I get another rim, can my original rim fit in place of the donut >spare? I can't speak for the 9-5, but the well in the boot of my 9-3 convertible simply isnt deep enough to accomodate a full size rim - otherwise they would have supplied one with the car - the spares aren't called "space saver wheels" for nothing!
