Looking for Rim Straightening service - Melbourne

Discussion in 'Businesses and Service Providers' at netrider.net.au started by ajm25, Aug 20, 2012.

  1. Hi guys.

    I ride a gsxr 600 07. Recently come off on a weekend ride and I have bent my rear rim. It has a large flat spot on one side of the rim. The other side is good. I think it hit the concrete gutter when I highsided it. Anyway I'm wanting to find out if anyone knows of any rim straightening places around melbourne?

    Thanks in advance

    these guys can fix rims, they fixed a flat spot on one of my wheels and respoke and trued the rim for $100.
    I was pretty pleased with the result

  8. alloy???

    depends how bad it is, but i didnt think anyone did alloy repairs, specially cast.
    steel etc... is different and repairable
