1100 for new wheel!!!
doesn't look like it's "seperated" to me, it simply looks bent. It it's only bent, and not torn off, talk to a wheel repair place, seems likely it could be fixed.
it looks like it hit a curb or similar type obstruction.
only a pro could tell you if it can be saved, I wouldn't be driving on it.
Looks like the result of a serious impact. While the 21"s aren't the most robust in the first place, that's one of the worst bent examples I've seen. It looks like the rim is cracked from the picture. Is the lip pulling away from the wheel, which is why you've said it's separated? It's hard to tell from the image.
It's *maybe* repairable if bent, but given the severity I doubt it. If it's cracked or separated, it's time for a new wheel.
Just adding to the chorus, take it to a wheel repair shop and see if it's repairable. I expect (in my non-expert opinion) that you will likely need a new one. Ouch.
Uhm, I wouldn't. That's a pretty big bend! Must have been quite the pothole. Or a curb.
As stated in the other thread. Needs a wheel repair place to comment.
Two threads? Will merge.
Ouch! Not sure if that much damage is fixable, honestly. Maybe check eBay for a single replacement wheel?
it is fixable...but will always be a bit weaker. I had a bigger bend in my forged tire and it was repaired...
That is a very badly bent rim, so bad it probably can't be fixed by a shop specializing in repairing bent rims. You'll probably have to replace the wheel.
Aside from the above, you must have hit something pretty hard and I wonder about the tire itself, mainly the sidewall. The tire needs to be removed and very carefully inspected by someone who really knows what he is doing. I suspect you are up for a new wheel and tire!!
