What is a material that can be molded and drilled into once cured? Answered

Hello,

I am currently working on a project where a plastic rim needs to be filled in. The area where the inner tube would normally go needs t be completely filled in and drilled into once it is cured.

This is a picture of a rim similar to the one we are using. The material would be strong and ideally not too expensive. 

if anyone has any ideas, I would very much like to hear them. 

Thank you!

I've never tried it myself, but people seem to have success with superglue and baking soda for this sort of thing. It's certainly cheap. Have a look at this Ible:
