If it's not on the mounting edge, you could use bondo and then sand it down.

Its not on the mounting edge just in the front where the center wheel and the out wheel come together. Any special type I should use it just for cosmetic reasons.

If you use bondo you need to make sure you properly seal the rim afterwards. With an epoxy sealer or powdercoat.

Re: Steel Rally Wheel pitting repair

I just painted my spare YH that I bought. It had some pitting on the back side mainly. I used hi-build primer, sanded and then painted it. It was orginally blasted and had etching primer sprayed. It looks fine for the spare wheel in the trunk.
