  • Buckled Alloy 19"

    Had a new set of front tyres fitted yesterday, on the motorway on the way home had very noticeable vibration through the steering wheel.

    Took it back thinking they hadn't balanced them but they had. They took it off, had another look and looks like the wheel's buckled.

    So... is it best to replace the wheel for safety's sake or have a go at repairing it (I needed to get the alloys refurbed anyway)?

    Cheers

        I got at least one buckled in my 18s on my corsa... found it when I had a puncture repaired. Keep meaning to go back and get all of em checked out but with christmas and all... plus I dont feel anything wrong whilst driving.

          It can be repaired depending on the severity of the buckle

            as cerberus said depending on the severity they can be repaired! a lot of wheels get buckled without you noticing although you can start to feel them over a certain speed, so makes sense if you felt it after they had been balanced on the motorway!
