    slot mag repair advice needed pls

    I recently bought a set of slot mags however one of the wheels has some reasonable damage to the outer lip ( rim protector ).

    I'd like to know what the best course of action is , should i get it built up with weld and machined to its original profile or is it acceptable to machine the lips off completely without affecting the structural integrity of the rim ?

    There are quite a few comapanies out there now specialising in this type of work as ULP tyres and 'mags' are not the best combination
