Does anyone currently straighten bent steel wheels? If so how has it worked for you, do you do the work in-house or use a vendor? Thanks for your input.
We will straighten a small bend on the lip, much beyond that we replace the wheel.
We have a company/vendor here that straightens them. Winnipeg Wheel Works. they are very good, but it depends on how bent it is.
We will straight small bend in bead lip only! Replacement for any other rim damage issues.
Small bends in the lip, anything else replace the rim, it's the safest way to go.
No, we replace, in our oponion, it's just safer that way
No Straightening. Replacement only. It is always better to be on the side of caution. In our opinion, if the rim is bent, it will be weaker.
We may staighten out a lip where a wheen weight may attach, anything beyond that is replaced.
