hey guys as most of you know im in the market for some new replica rims blah blah blah not the point anways i was wondering if its bad to drive on a bent rim? its kind of annoying hwneyou hit 50 and the car kind of feels like the wheel is low on air but at slower speeds no sign what so ever, ive been driving the truck since it happened but have wanted to drive my baby a few times!! so im thinking maybe once a week if its not bad or could like blow out or anything

Thanks

David

I had a bent rim awhile back...around 40mph it would start vibrating. I took them to a wheel shop and they repaired the rim. What they do is heat it up and bend it back until its smooth again. About $75....no problems since.
