When I first bought my car my Dad's friend who is a mechanic and who worked on teh car told me my rims are bent to shit and only straightened the front two. A week later I was screwin around with teh car and slid sideways, regained traction, and slammed headon into a curb. Anyway, I was just wondering of any chains such as Sears that works with tires who can straighten my rims at a REASONABLE price. I paid 100 the first time which really pissed me off (for each rim). Also, how much does a leeking power steering fluid hose matter if you barely loose any fluid? Will it lower your performance of your steering because it needs to be a perfect seal? Also, I loose about 3 inches of coolant every few weeks or so out of the resovoir. Is this a lot and can I patch it up with that stuff you put in? Thanks for reading the randomness. oh wait haha and can I replace the coolant sensor without flushing my system. I figure if I just take the take off and close the other hoses no air bubbles will get in. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply. How badly do bent rims effect the performance of manuevering? I can't tell if it it's worth 280+ if it isn't actually going to make a difference. Plus, what is the DEAL WITH CREAKING weatherstripping! I heard about putting adhesive felt tape onto the door and only one all weather was recommended but it needed to be ordered in bulk. Anyone heard of a permenent fix for this? When it's raining it is 100% silent so it can't be anything but the weatherstripping.
