E30TECH Posted March 31, 2007 Share Posted March 31, 2007 I got the new tires mounted and balanced. I was rotating the front rim and noticed a very slight bend. it is bent slightly outward right on on the bead area. It would almost seem like I bent it in the HF tire changer, but I did not put that much pressure on the rim AND that was not the side I had in the jaws. The tire is holding air. The area that is bent is about 1" long. At the worst part of the bend, it might come out about 1/8". It is more of a gradual bend. There is no cracked metal or paint - no other damage at all. The only way I noticed it was from spinning it and seeing the slight wobble. Should I get this fixed, replace, or leave it? Link to comment
