Weld Racing Wheels ?

So anyways, I don't know the first thing about wheels...

I recently sold a vehicle that had a set of these in the back of it.

Weld Racing Wheels Scorpio Enlarged

3 of them are perfect, 1 of them has some issues.. it looks like the owner had a flat, and ran on the edge of the rim for a bit before stopping. I don't have an actual pic of the damaged wheel right now, but it looks to be fixable.

My question is.. compared to what they would be worth as a whole set vs tossing them in the garbage, would it be worth it to fix that wheel or are these just a throwaway brand?

It's not actually bent.. it's just got some rough scuffing on the outside lip where he had a flat and rolled on it for a minute. I don't know whether it would hold air as it is or not but if I were going to put them on something I owned I'd want to smooth it out some.

They are also wide, the guy had them on a set of 35 inch bf goodrich a/t tires. I dunno if these would fit on your normal run of the mill tires.

Truth is I really don't want to mess with them, I'll take a pic today and get a quote for fixing it then post it up to see if someone wants to buy them as is.
