    Default Wanted: Land Cruiser 70 Standard rim: 2015 model

    I damaged a rim and want a replacement rim for sale.

    I will appreciate any comments on the reliability of rim repairs on aluminium rims. I have a 4 cm hairline crack from the edge of the rim. Name:  FB_IMG_1529861937882.jpg

    There are a few places in PTA and Centurion which do repairs. Years ago with a VW caravelle hit a pothole so hard the mag bent to such an extent it damaged the caliper. Never thought it could be repaired but it was and was perfect for years afterwards.

    Thanks for the input. The rim was repaired a while ago and it cracked at the same place. I drove it a few metres with the flat tyre and the tyre is so badly damaged / destroyed that i cannot determine whether the flat was caused by the rim or the rim was damaged after the flat.. (load is close to 1 ton with canopy caravan)
    The tyre moni warning only sounded after I stopped!!
    I sort of lost confidence in the repaired rim as I plan a Namibia tour and do not have space for a extra spare..
    The repair was done by a reputed workshop in Gesina.

    More inputs / experiences with repaired mags and failures will be appreciated.

    These mags are scares but you do find them now and again. Just bought 4 off a travel company. Check out gumtree as there are some single rims like that for sale.
