bent rim - not ranger
Was going to put this in "off topic" but I thought this might be a better place. Apparently I bent the inside of one of the rims on my Neon somehow. This happened probably close to 3 years ago but since I bought my truck I have maybe driven it 3 times since then (with stock steelie not the bent one). The lure of 30+ mpg wants me to get the car on the road again. Anywho, here is a crappy cell phone pic of the damage. Its maybe 2" long and bent out an estimated 1/4". All I know is it doesn't hold air and the tire is basically brand new. I think I had it on for maybe a month. The tire checks out fine. Its a 14" Aluminum Enkei.
I want to get this fixed so can roll on a complete set again, and was wondering if you guys knew of any negative effects of banging the rim back in place. I havn't taken it anywhere to get a professional opinion yet, just wanted to see what you guys had to say.
