Has anyone used JB weld to repair minor curb rash? I know that Bondo is fairly common. Some say JB weld is stronger, but harder to sand.

Input?

Yeah, I plan to curb them again and want it to be stronger than the curb :eeps:

Just wondering. I already have JB weld. If it will work fine, then I dont need to go buy bondo.

Update:

I used JB Weld to fill in the cracks. I prepped it by filing all the old paint off and cleaning with a contact cleaner. It worked great and once painted it blends perfectly.

I've studied through your DIY multiple times lol, I'm just trying to decide if my wheels need a complete refinish, or just touch up. There's some rough patches on the inner spokes, as if the paint is fading or that its been refinished before (I got them second hand). The rash isn't THAT bad I guess, but they definitely need some TLC

^you can do a touchup and blend the paint, i've seen it done and it looks great! its not as bad as say, blending paint on the car, on wheels its much easier, and faster.
