Do repaired wheels add any value to a car that's intended for sale?

The results depend of a lot of factors, such as age of the car, make and model, and of course, the type of wheels in questions. But generally, wheel repairs will add value to most cars since newly-repaired wheels are likely to improve the appearance of a car by far.

However, as a rule, the original value of a car will determine how much value repairing its wheels will add – the valuable the car, the more value wheel repair will increase its value.
