Yesterday I damaged the inner rim of 1 of my Alloys on a pothole.Tyre went down on me so put spare steel wheel on.
Went to 2 places to see what could be done,both said not repairable needs new wheel.
Spoke to my son and we both decided nothing to lose.
Today we laid wheel on the ground got lump hammer and block of hardwood and gently hit the wheel back into shape.Filled it with air again and it sealed just fine soapy water test was fine.
Put it back on car I've tested it at 30/40 & 50 mph wheel balance fine.Its still inflated after 8 hours so far.
Tomorrow I'll test it on Motorway at 60/70 and mind your own business speeds.
