88 bronco II out-of-round wheels?

Postby dgl6y6 » Tue May 07, 2013 1:45 pm

Ive got at least 2 wheels that are out of round. its not too bad but i can feel the vibration on the highway. im trying to get the old b2 back to perfect operating condition and the to-do list is getting pretty short. ive heard of places that can straighten bent wheels but i dont know if its worth the money. anybody had any experience with this?

A bent rim is not worth straightening unless it is some special production rim. I wouldn't do it because I don't play with safety issues like rims on my vehicle..
