Rim-Straightening

Don’t get bent out of shape! RimPerfection has the ability to repair Bent Wheels that were damaged due to heavy impact

The seasonal temperature swing in the Greater Toronto Area (frigid winters and steamy summers) cause the formation of thousands of potholes throughout the city.  Combined with road conditions related to construction, debris and objects just left lying in the road, and the GTA can be a gauntlet with hazards that’s difficult to avoid. Add in a few curbs, and the result is a wheel that requires Rim Straightening!

Ignoring or deferring the repair of a bent rim can increase tire wear, cause alignment and suspension problems and wreak havoc on your vehicle.  Bent wheels can cause vibrations while steering, uneven tread wear on the tires, flat tires, warped rotors, and cause other mechanical problems if driven on for too long after being damaged.  It’s critical to get your bent wheel replaced or fixed through rim straightening.

Symptoms of a bent wheel that requires rim straightening include vibration in the steering wheel, vibration in the seat, loss of response and handling, tire scallop, decreased fuel economy, and thumping sounds while driving. 

That was the bad news… The good news is that RimPerfection can fix most bent rims! Our specialized equipment, combined with a high degree of our technician’s expertise, can straighten some of the most difficult bends!

Rim Perfection’s Process for Rim Straightening

Preparation

  • Rust, scale and old paint is removed.
  • Rim is cleaned to base metal and inspected for cracks, bends, and worn bolt holes.
  • Rim is sandblasted.
  • Rims are thoroughly inspected for safety.

Straightening

  • Rim is inspected with a highly sensitive dial indicator which carefully measures the wheel to determine the exact location and severity of the bend.
  • The bent wheel is then repaired and brought back to original manufacturers’ specifications via specialized techniques and sophisticated machinery.
  • The process results in a straightened wheel that is safe and reduces wobbling and vibrations while driving.
