Re: welding wheels.

As long as the welding is done to a decent standard then there is no reason why it would weaken the wheel,it's the way that all the leading alloy wheel repairers do their work including filling areas that are dented/scraped/missing.

Have a look at the pictures here on how a large area of missing wheel was built up using TIG welding.....
