hey guys!! im back....with a question :)

my gf recently went over a pot hole with her mini cooper and i guess the force of impact actually bent her right side front rim....the bent was not too bad but its impossible to fix by hands. So i was wondering how do you guys fix your bend rims? like info on some shops that do it will be perfect :thumbsup:

to prevent this from happening in the future.. put more air pressure in the tires.. (and don't let a woman drive)

I think her rim size and tire combo is small first of all and i think only that specific rim went into the pot hole...so i assume that rim took all the pressure and bent :dontknow:

lol she said the reason why she bent her rim was because she was trying to catch up with me...i got the blame on me again..

Precision rim repair - costs about 125 to fix a bent wheel, depending on how badly it is bent.

should i send them a pic of the damage and ask for a quote or should drive up there and let them examine it?

They'll just tell you to drive out to them.

Ric's a nice guy, I brought my severely bent Volks to him (ran over a brick on the highway) and he pointed out bends that I didn't even know existed on some other wheels, but upon closer observation were actually there. =O
