Probably get shot down from all angles but its only a question....

I have seen 4 tyres for sale with some "ruined" alloys.

Apparently the previous owner thought it a good idea to redrill the bolt holes to fit his nova. Problem is 2 are very close to original holes. Can these original holes be welded up?

It depends on what you want to use them for. Pottering around and going to shows should be ok.

If you take them on a track or thrash the thing down the back lanes they could fail.

Just found out that all the holes are original as in the white wheel above. It's just that 2 have been widened to suit nova fitment....
