Re: straighten rims

After. It cost me 125 for both at "bumpers to go" in so ho. I hear rollo and sabs do some of the best work on wheel repair in houston. Blue wave is right, see if u can find a set of used one. After all was said and done I've spent about 400 on those wheels. Getting it fixed, powdered, new bearings/seals, dismount/mount/balance and the legwork.
