I had a day of damage on Sunday. Somehow must have got a rock up in the wheel and pierced through the aluminum. Is the stock Polaris wheel able to be welded?
Why do you think it's not possible or a bad idea?Sorry bro ur out of luck. Any reputable rim welder wouldn't repair that hole. The one thing that could be done is to back half it using a doaner rim.
Sounds like a tough day out on the trails. You can get anybody to Jerry rig anything but doing it the rite way is what I'm taking about. Just think about it. Wheel balance. Integrity of the repair. Is this a part that u would want a band-aid type repair done to? Also I know automobile wheels get repaired all the time but these aren't automobiles. We run lower tp's and our rims are constantly subject to damage. In your case the only way Togo as far as a rim repair would be to "back-half" it and that's if the damage isn't to far into the rim. I agree with the other members on searching out a replacement rim on e-bay or the likes.Why do you think it's not possible or a bad idea?Sorry bro ur out of luck.

My main concern is, is there any weird metal mixture that makes it difficult or impossible?
Honestly, where it's located, I'm not to concerned about a weld being strong enough. It doesn't seem to me that the area is that vital for strength integrity. Just needs to hold air and not fracture out any further. Maybe I'm wrong though?
I'm trying to save money because I also blew out my power steering, broke the cooling fan, jammed the brake caliper, etc. There was an incident. lol
