Default Need to fix a bent forged wheel, where?

Looking for any information on where I could fix a bent forged wheel. I remember the Mid-A guys saying Ye Old Wheele Shoppe in MD, There's a place in Bath, PA.... but anywhere else a bit closer?

The outer lip on one of my Volks is bent, the wheel is round otherwise.

My roommates dad owns Ye Old Wheele Shop. They do really good work, and they won't screw you around.

Yes my father owns Ye olde wheel shop. The only problem with getting a wheel fixed right now is the wait time. The shop is crazy backed up right now, and the wait time is about ~4 weeks right now. We have 3 people straightening wheels and its still incredibly backed up.

Give the shop a Call: 410.796.8400 you can speak with anyone there.

$2000 w/ S-03s.

DYI01 - One wheel 4 weeks? Can I ship it down, or is it better to drop off? Does it matter that I just want it unbent, I'll take care of recoating them.

Some people recommended Al's hubcap around New Hyde Park in LI, and a lot of people said Wheels America in Farmindale when I had the same question. I got a quote for a bent rim with curb rash for $105 at Al's hubcap, they only paint to blend the lip with the rim (you have polished lip then I dunno). Wheels America is $129 + tax flat rate, they're supposed to be the best around NY but forget keeping your Volk decals......... thats the downside, they will repaint the whole rim thats why.

Not worried about the decals or paint... I just want the wheels straight again

Jon, Thanks, I'll look into all of the above... I sent you a PM too.

Al's is right by me. i've had him mount tyres before, and some other work, but never had him straighten a rim. if he's open on sundays, u can get down there in less than a hour and a half, easily.
