Q: Bent wheel on passenger side

asked by on

The wheel is bent on the passenger's side.

Hello. Bent wheels can be a problem as they will cause tire wear and can cause vibration. If the vehicle is equipped with a steel wheel you can usually take the wheel to a tire store that can send the wheel out to be straightened. If it is aluminum this can be done also up to an extent. Most of the time the aluminum wheel will need to be replaced. You should take the wheel to a tire shop that can check the wheel to see if it is repairable.
