    bent rim, where do i go to get it fixed? (SE pa)

    I bent a rim this weekend somehow, I dont even remember hitting a pothole But anways, its not too too bad, just the lip on the inside so im guessing it can be bent back into shape. Do you know where I can go to get it bent back?

    Rim fix

    There is franchise in New York right now, not yet in PA though. I had some curb scuff fixed, great service.

    Just bang it out with a hard rubber mallet, if you don't have one available, use a piece of wood between the rim and a regular steel mallet.

    Thanks for the help! I found a place in wilmington called Sports Car Tire, and the owner is an alumn of penn state so he gave me 50 bucks off. Great place, and they did a good job.

    Sorry dont have any. After they bent it back, the paint is flaking in that spot, but other than that you cant really tell.
