    Repairing/straightening rims

    As above, I have a couple of wheels that I suspect have gone over a kerb or a pothole and have a slight buckle. My question is where is the best place recommended to straighten them out? Thanks in advance...

    George at motorcycle doctors got my cast rims off my zrx repaired and straightened for me... not sure where though - if you asked him he might tell you.. he's a decent bloke.

    Bike wheel? Dunno...
    Arrow Wheels in Kelston did a nice job for me on a car mag though
    High miles, engine knock, rusty chrome, worn pegs...

    "Wheel and Frame NZ", Cambridge highly recomended, straightened balanced and made this look like new after a crash.

    I recently used Steve Bridge at F1 Engineering with great results too.

    He build a machine for doing it a while back.

    Another vote for Wheel and Frame Cambridge, they straightened a wheel for me in March and do a same day turnaround service.
