Default bent rim

I have JDM Legacy rims and I found out today that one of the front rims of my car was bent(it was making the steering wheel to shake on freeway speed).. So, I had all my rims rebalanced. The bent wasnt that bad but the shaking annoyed the hell out of me so I installed the bent rim on the rear.. I test drove it and the steering was good. Do you think I'm good with one bent rim on the rear? Should I buy a new one or have a local rim shop fix it..

Ask the people who balanced it what they think. If it balances ok and isn't leaking air and isn't cracked I'd say you're fine.

you can still have a vibration even if it balances out ... you can balance a cube but, it won't roll very well
