I work at BMW Houston @ 1960 and i45. We have a sublet company onsite during the weekdays. Usually 150 for car rims. If its a serious bend you may consider replacing it. If interested, PM me for my cell#. I'm sure they have a number I can scrounge up

everyone says to use SABS off 59 south or A-1 up in spring. I personally had my wheel straightened by someone else, a nd I'm not too sure about the quality of the job.

whats that saying hind sight is 20/20 I like to save money too, BUT I,ve also learned that once U recoupe from the extra expense, the quality is still there for a long time, If you go the cheaper route sometimes U gotta redo it shortly after and then it costs more time and money

I've been through 3 rims within the last two months on my GSXR-750 (none of which were my fault) and I just picked them up off of eBay for cheep.
