Your best bet is to buy a new wheel.

or

You could try hammering it out and getting it balanced again.

Dessies in Blackpool will tell you straight away if its repairable or not. If theres any crack at all in it though, you'll have to get a new one.

Default alloy wheel repair

From what I can gather, Toyota wheels are prone to corrosion, and mine are no exception. Will an alloy wheel refurb place be able to sort them, or is it only kerbing and scratches that they can fix?

Thumbs up Alloy Wheel Repair in Cork

H there,
Not only are your Toyota wheels prone to corrosion, but believe it or not even Mercedes have a big problem with Corrode Alloys Wheel Rims also.
The cause of the corrosion is the break down of the lacquer that seals the Original finish from the factory.
Some known cases for this problem would be Scuffed Alloys where the Scuff has broken the lacquer, corrosion then works’ its way in between alloy and the lacquer.
Also Bad quality lacquerers used in the Original finish from the factory that break down letting Moisture work its way between the alloy and the lacquer.
You will also notice that cars imported from the UK are more prone to this type of wheel corrosion due to the large amounts of salt used on the roads there, the salt breaks down the lacquerers used in the Original finish from the factory.

But you will be glad to know you can have them back like NEW when you send them here.
