You can get those rolled out, if you haven't cracked them.

Those SM pro ones are $180 here in Australia, made in England, all colours, they are one of the best available. Excels are way way more expensive. The DID rims are great too, they are easier to fix.

Get new rims. The old ones are going to weaken if you get them repaired. D.I.D. are the strongest and yes, Excel's are expensive if you are looking to get colored rims. But they are fairly price for chrome.
