+1 for A1. They did the front on my ZX-11. It would hold air but had a huge bend in it before they got it.

Put a dial indicator on it and it was still a little off. So yes still had a little bit of a wobble. Fortunately I was able to finish it getting perfect with a rubber mallet. You probably wouldn't have felt it on the street. But I knew it wasn't right and it bugged me

I think its more than a balance issue rather than a wobble. I had a rear wheel repaired then had a huge bend/crack. They bent and welded it back to spec. Had a tire installed an balanced perfectly. 5 tackdays on it with no issues.....the price was reasonable and customer service was great...
