I recently found that I have a bent rim. I can feel it on the highway. My question is, should i try to bend it back? Or will I just mess it up more. Its not terrible feeling, just irritating.

:iamwithstupid: Don't try it yourself. It's possible to make it worse without the right equipment.

I straightened out an old 15X10 Centerline wheel a while back (15 years).
I used a brass hammer to hold up against the wheel and a regular 4lb sledge to hit the brass hammer. It was worse than yours and it came out good. But i recommend going to get it done, i had no money for that kind of stuff when i was young and dumb!

Doesn't really look all that bad. I would think you could just get it rebalanced and you would never know.
Yea, and since I got a company vehicle I rarely drive it now. Maybe 30 miles a week. Ill probably just leave it for now. And when I am ready for new tires I'll take care of the then.
