mad I Buckled a Rim nnnnnooooo!

You gotta love central QLD roads. Driving along the other day, slight lapse in concentration, didnt see a pothole till it was 2 late and bang! 1 wrecked 18*8 TL50 rim. Now the car has a wheel wobble at about 80-85kph, all wheels have since been balanced and the buckled wheel was put on the back as i was told it would minimise the wobble. I was just wondering if there was anywhere that can fix the wheel? has anyone else had this experience?

Cheers

Geez you would be spewin about that one mate. But you are in luck. A mates dads mate had 18x8 AME rims on his vt. They are awesome, neways he hit a pothole and dented the rim. You can get them fix. I think they just machine it (whatever that consist of) unsure of the price of it though

Good luck

Re: I Buckled a Rim nnnnnooooo!

the rim can be re-rolled by specialist agents. I know you are not in Adelaide, but a company called extensive wheel services deals with these problems everyday,.
