Straightening Process

This is a repaired bent rim

Symptoms of a bent rim include:

1. Vibration felt in the steering wheel.
2. Uneven tire tread and wear.
3. Increase in road noise (thumping or droning).
4. Decrease in fuel economy.
5. Poor handling.

Our strength is in our straightening. RimPRO has a proprietary process that has allowed us to bring wheels beyond “usable” to the near perfect specification of +/- .020” Our machines are designed to remove the dent, ding, or bend without the use of heat that can compromise the temper or composition of the alloy. Even with our proprietary equipment not all rims can be straightened. Sometimes the rim may crack during the process. We always inspect the rim with the owner and discuss options prior to straightening.
