out of round 6 hole wheels

Post by birdacre » August 18th, 2017, 8:24 am

several of my wheels are out of round. about .75 inch at worst spot. i put a block of wood and a straight edge and rotated tire. anyone have a solution to this. i have heard of breaking wheels down and putting them in a large press in a machine shop? seems beyond the limits of balancing. any ideas? i know these are hard to come by.

5 Rims cost $625.00. Which was $125.00 over his estimate. He says they needed extra work so $25.00 each was the charge. But with that being said I now have rims that are not bent or out of true. Much cheaper than buying repops.
