tire store says my rims are bent...
I felt one of my front tires acting like it's out of balance. I had it balanced but the guy balancing it showed me that even though its balanced, it's bent enough to where I am going to feel it in the steering wheel regardless. Has this happened to anyone else? When I looked at the wheel spinning on the balancing thing, it did look pretty bad. He said 2 of my rims are bad like that. Today I am going to try putting one of the bent ones in back to see if I notice a difference. I am told if I dont get a new rim I am going to ruin the wheel bearings. anyone else have an experience like this one?
