Reconditioned rim?

So someone hit my Jeep a few weeks back and now its in the body shop. the rim is scuffed and chipped. The body shop tried to order a new rim from Cry but they are on backorder. They called me today to ask me if they could send it out to someone to get reconditioned instead. What do you guys think? Should I get it reconditioned or wait for a new rim? These things are like $1300ea.

What I was thinking is I could have them get it reconditioned and if i dont like it then ill tell them i wanna new rim. win win i guess?

Or I could ask them if they would send all 4 out to get powder coated black. Thoughts? Need help!

Re: Reconditioned rim?

If it is still driveable on the old rim, I would wait for the new one. IMO

Re: Reconditioned rim?

I have a similar situation, my rim was damaged while my jeep was in the possession of the dealer. The service manager did not want to take a chance of reconditioning the rim and ordered a new one. Mine too is on backorder.

Scott if you can make a call I'd like mine sooner than 3-4 weeks PM Me - lol

Re: Reconditioned rim?

You tell them while its out on back order, you have the rim reconditioned in the meantime. It costs like a hundred bucks.

If your jeep is black I would get them Black Chrome . For the stock rim to be recondition there are 2 colors they first color is black the 2nd is what we see not sure what color it is being called.
