Well i was told that you could get the rim formed back to its original form. Do you think that it would be cheaper then buying a new one? Im new at this **** so work with me haha

^^^ this, unless your wheels are super expensive or rare, I would probably just try and get a new one.

Re: Bent Rim!!! Pot Holes Burn In Hell!!!

Pics of rim damage. If it's a crack inside of the rim, JB weld, and sand smooth. it'll hold. if the LIP is done yeah, take it to a shop, or ebay the three good ones and with that money search CL for a whole set.

Re: Bent Rim!!! Pot Holes Burn In Hell!!!

If the rim's cracked, ditch it -- JB Weld might make it air-tight, but it won't hold for long under the pounding any wheel takes. Many places that straighten bent rims won't even take a cracked one.

I've had a couple of bent rims fixed over the years, and haven't ever really been satisfied. For stock wheels, I've had better luck going on eBay and looking for a replacement. If it's an aftermarket wheel and out of production, then you do what you can.

Re: Bent Rim!!! Pot Holes Burn In Hell!!!

You're right Jamie, the crack I had wasn't that bad, the tire held air, no leaks. If you can see light through the crack, don't risk you or the car for one rim.

I would personally just buy a new wheel.
Trying to bend the wheel back into shape could compromise the integrity of the wheel, and could become a safety hazard.
