jking220 Posted March 12, 2008 Report Share Posted March 12, 2008 My GF hit a pothole on the way to work this morning. She said she was going less than 35, and the DIC didnt tell her the tire was low, but Im guessing it must have been (she probably didnt look at it since it always tells us to change the brake pads since I havent done that yet). Went to change the tire this afternoon and found the rim bent on the inside bead. Rim didnt look cracked, I will post pictures of the "dent" tonight after she gets home with the car and I am out of class. Has anyone had any luck with fixing/straightening rims? They are the chrome 17" STS rims on an 01 STS. I really dont want to end up with any more shake from this, already need to RFB the tires when I buy new ones. My dad had an issue with his 99 STS having a bent rim (16"), and we just bought a new one after trying to have it welded/fixed, but that rim was also cracked. I found some 17s on ebay, but many are listed as coming off a CTS. They look the same as my rims, just with different center caps. Does anyone know if this is the same rim, like same offset...etc? The ebay number for one of these is 130205183206 apparently it is not chrome, and many of the others I see are "polished", so thats an issue too. I just wanted to get others opinions before I sink anymore money into this rim. Thanks Jonah Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
