There seems to be a trend towards repairing wheels nowadays, and it's certainly understandable considering the cost involved in replacement. I have seen many advertisements for wheel repair in various magazines, such as Road & Track, and Automobile. I did have one of the Gottis repaired on mine when I crashed it and I haven't had any problems with that rim.

Just be sure it's a reputable shop and you shouldn't have any problems. ;)

Yes, I have a local place do all my aluminum repairs. They can also repair the magnesiums. Top notch firm, excellent quality.
If you cannot find a place local to you, just hit me an E, and I can forward the information.
