Buckled alloys

Post by Adamski_m » Mon Aug 14, 2017 3:22 pm

My two rear alloys seem to be buckled now as I can see they aren't rotating evenly in the wheel arches. Is there a way to straighten alloys or would I just be cheaper getting a new set?

If they have flat spots then yes they can be repaired fairly cheaply. But if the wheel if actually buckled then no there is no economical way to get them straight again.

Yeah the Riva DTMs Marco. Yes both of the rear wheels come out at the top each rotation so I'm guessing they are completely knackered. Probably from our crappy roads and that track day I did in them I would guess :roll:

Yeah, I don't usually recommend 19's. Very pretty, but not much cop.
