Wheel Straightening

 

Wheel Straightening

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.

Small bends in the lip, anything else replace the rim, it's the safest way to go.

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 feel it is better to replace for safety reasons. No sense taking a chance on an accident for the price of a rim.
