    Didn't bother to look on the backside of the set of rims that I bought today. Is this one with the gouge in it ruined, or can it be simply be ground out.

    Rust, dents, miles, extra metal.
    Doesn't look all that deep from here.

    Won't be noticeable once installed on the truck. I wouldn't worry about it.

    This. Except use a wire cup instead of a flap disc. Flap disc may take away more than necessary, could end up needing a ton of wheel weights to balance that one.

    My experience is a wire cup can remove loose paint and corrosion scales, but will struggle with removing the base metal. Here we have a groove made by a bad ball joint or a stone trapped between the caliper and the wheel. The idea is to blend out the groove without deepening it, to provide a more gradual transition and alleviate the stress concentration. Better to use a flap disc for it.

    Depends on how hard you go off-road. :p Use your own judgment (say, -10% from original thickness as a rule of thumb).

    As long as it holds air and can be balanced .

    From the picture it does not look deep.

    I have deeper gouges on the outside on some wheels .

    If this is going to keep you awake nights then don`t use it

    I would be tempted to just pretend it's not there and use them as-is. I can't imagine it would have a noticeable impact on balance or structural integrity.

    Kinda looks like a casting imperfection that may have gotten ground down?
