2 of my wheels were bent
i've always liked the huffs but am not sure where a good (cheap) place to buy them is...but then again, i know some people on here have nice looking wheels on their Fahrenheits. leaning towards something black if i go that route. any suggestions???

they are bent on the inside. funny thing is, i never noticed any symptoms while driving?! i've never had any issues like this before but that would be cheaper! slight curb rash on one of them too

as long as the bends arent causing air leaks or wobbles at speed id say keep them till you are ready for new wheels. no sense in rushing.

If there was any more Saturation applied to that photo it would be dripping...

I'd keep the wheels on if your not losing air. No reason to waste money

i just swapped with the winter wheels a couple of weeks ago & they weren't bent then. i never even noticed with my bald tires howling...but now that i have new re760's that are EXTREMELY quiet, i can feel it a lil bit & psychologically of course. i really don't want to wreck my new tires though, so if it could, then i really need new wheels asap cuz i'm not putting the steelies back on now!!!

i'd be willing to bet a solid 50% of cars with 18''+ wheels have bends in them.
