Default Did I just turn my rim into scrap?

So I took some advice and tried to bore out my titans using a router and rabbeting bit. Now I think my rim is scrap cause the bit dropped to .7in rather than .5in. What do you think? Ami going to need a new rim?

Should be fine - bore the whole thing to .7 to keep it balanced

If I bore it .7 then it will show through all the lugs. Wouldn't that be bad for crack8ng?

I can't really tell what I'm looking at in this pic.

Did you cut too deep down (thickness of wheel) or too deep wide (radius).

The protruding lip cut off with the first pass.

Can you post a better pic?

Pretty sure he went to deep and got in to the lug nut relief area and you can now see through the rim. If that is truly what I'm seeing then I wouldn't run it.

Doesn't look like he got near the stud hole, you can see light between the area he was supposed to bore and the stud hole

Yea, .7 bored into the lug pocket on the front side of the rim. Since the rims are hub centric I think I would pass on putting this on my truck. Pick up another rim and bore them at the correct depth and you will be fine.

Yea the router bit dropped to .7 and put me through to the lug pocket. I'm just going to scrap this rim and get another one, then have a machine shop do it.

Just balance them lug centric, should be fine. I took a bit more on mine as well when boring and have no problems.
