    So my wife accidentally did this today on her 2015 CRV trying to do a u-turn.


    I'm trying to determine if I can just file off trashed part and buff it a bit an leave it, or if there may be structural issues that I need to have looked at on the rim.

    Thoughts?

    File it buff it. If it’s cracked get it fixed or replaced.

    There's mobile wheel repair places who specialize in stuff like this. might be worth the 100-200 bucks to you to fix it.
