Anyone know of a good place that can straighten bent rims? Preferably within MA or a couple hours drive from my house. Thanks!

Oh, you added the "100 bucks a rim" since I read your response...

Yeah, for a custom wheel, that's not easily replaceable, it's worth the money. And that includes the dismount, repair, remount and balance.

It would probably be cheaper if you brought in just the rim, or if you just ask them. Has worked for me. Smile

LOL Best question of the day!

Justin, if you drop them off I can be your local pick up guy! Just so they aren't hanging around there and "forgotten" not that I'm saying they would do that, just trying to help a b-body brother out!

Put the wagon up on jack stands and put the bent rim without the tire on the rear axle and put it in drive, get yourself a small 2lb sledge hammer and repeatedly whack the rim as it turns .......

Let me know how it works out Razz Razz Razz Razz

It's not on the wagon. It's Sauerkraut. Both CV joints are bad, and in turn the rims are bent Mad

Lots of Euro wheels, like BBS's are super-soft & bend like cookie dough Surprised

I have dealt with Rim-pro several times & have nothing but good stuff to say about them. 1st class work. Very Happy

^ Now I hate Jettas even more Neutral


Justin, NOTHING against you. Just Jettas, the worst car I've ever driven was a Jetta. It didn't have the rusted hood mod though, so thats one thing it has going for it.
