straightening bent rims..95% success rate....

well Rapid Dog if anyone has taken on stuff like this and made it usable again your're talking to him,,,,

are those Dirt-Stars???,,7000 series is tougher than the 6000series to straighten,,the rim need to be partially unlaced in order to be able to do the straightening,,,hey ,,,its junk now so all we can do is see what happens,,if it doesn't work we do not charge,,,we'll just install another hoop new or used got everything from patching to perfection

FYI,,,those dents look like $100-120 to straighten and true..

NOTE!!!! when dented like that PLEASE do not hammer on them,,it invariably leads to the rims cracking ...thus necessitating welding etc
