  1. Can a rim be bent mounting a tire?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I had four new tires put on by town fair tire about a week ago. I had no vibrations or shaking of any sort before I went to get the tires mounted and I was driving with worn tires. I got the exact same set of tires I had before but after the mounting I've been having a slight vibration that gets...

    I didn't notice until I got new tires but all 4 of my rims (ms3 wheels on sedan) are bent. Am I going to need to buy New wheels? Any suggestions on where to get then cheap if so

    Went in to get a tire rotation and two new Kumho tires to replace one tire that had a huge bubble on it and another that was leaking air, both due to potholes in Pennsylvania... Turns out all 4 of the rims were bent, the one that was leaking air was bent the worst. Gunna have to pay an extra...
  4. Bent wheel(s)?

    When I start driving after stopped at a light, I can feel short of wobble. I'm starting to think I bent a wheel or wheels somehow. Is there a way to find out if I bent it without taking it to a specialty shop? I did get them balanced after I mounted them so I don't think that's the issue.
  5. Bent rim?

    Pacific West
    Does anyone know a place where I can get a bent rim fixed near Southern California? I just bought a set of Drag DR-31's for dirt cheap, but one needs to be fixed. Also, I want to get them powder coated, so if anyone also knows where I can do that, I'd be grateful. Thankss

    Not a good day. On the way to work a suv in the next lane kicked a big chunk of concrete right in front of my car. Having no time to react it caught the lip of both of my right side wheels. The front went flat within minutes. The rear is bent but still holding air. The tires don't appear to be...

    After one week with the new wheels (18x7.5 5Zigen ZR+) I have one that is bent. I don't recall hitting a pothole and I'm usually quite careful when driving, but nonetheless one is bent pretty well. The day after having the wheels and tires mounted I checked the tire pressure and found all 4...
