Default damaged my gold BBS today

I was trying to avoid a pole hot in my parking lot and instead my rim went up the curve.It seems to be pulling a little different. Can I get it fixed at a tire shop????

No. Sell your other 3 to me cheap.

But seriously, you can go to a tire shop and ask them to check it on the balancing machine. They'll be able to tell you if the rim is bent.

That's how I found out one of the used BBS I bought is bent even though you couldn't see it visually. GRRRRRRR. (seller told me it was ok)
