Bent Rims? No Problem.
Bends can be caused by a variety of things, like hitting a pothole, running into road debris, “popping” a curb, or driving on a flat tire. The bends can sometimes be seen on the face of the wheel, but more often they are on the back-side of the wheel and cannot be seen unless the wheel is taken off the car. Even after taking the wheel off the car, some bends cannot be seen by the naked eye and are found only through the use of highly sensitive measuring equipment. If your wheel is shaking or feels like it is out of balance, it very well may be bent.
Do Bigger Rims Bend Easier?
Wheels keep getting bigger and bigger and the tires that match these wheels have a smaller profile than ever. Combine that with wheels being manufactured from softer metal compounds and it becomes very easy to see how just hitting a small pothole can severely bend a wheel.
How do we fix bent rims?
We measure the run out of each wheel we service and make sure that it meets or exceeds the original manufacturers’ specifications before we put it back on your vehicle.
What kind of bent rims can you fix?
We can fix front side bends, back side bends, radial bends, and lateral bends. We can also fix bends in alloy, steel, and magnesium wheels.
