I have a '99 328i with 3 bents rims. I have the 17" 7 spoke wheels. Its difficult to find a place that will deal with bent rims, and besides, I doubt the structural integrity of the repaired wheels would never be the same. I don't think the wheels are bent that bad, but will find out more tomorrow as the car was sent in to repair a suspension problem due to an accident. Do you know how much the 17" wheels are from the OEM? These are plain single spoke wheels. Are they alloy wheels? I live in the Ft Lauderdale area and was thinking about getting reconditioned wheels. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Here in Vancouver, BC there are guys that specialize in rims. I approached them while they were working on some cars at a BMW dealership in Vancouver. They told me it would be cheaper if I had repair work to go through the dealership than to contact them privately (you'd think the reverse). I saw some of their repair work and it was awesome. I don't know how severe your damage, but I'd check it out with your dealership (they've pretty much seen everything) and see what can be done. Needless to say, I don't know what's going on in your area, but I'm guessing you have the equivelent of these guys down in your neck of the woods.
