Thread: Pinpointing Bends

    Default Pinpointing Bends

    I just bought an entire set of 19x8 OZ Galileo IIIs for my Volvo s60 off facebook for only $200!!! They are cosmetically quite rough and I know for sure at least 2 of the lips are bent. If I have a tire shop put the wheel on a balancer, will they be able to tell me if the barrels are okay? I know I definitely want to make them a tad bit wiser, but if I can re-use the barrels that would be great.

    They should be able to.., usually bends can be seen when put on a balancer.

    You can check that youself too, slowly roll them on a flat surface and watch for woobles in an vertical fashion.
    Or put a pipe tru the center bore and spin it, watch lip or barrel edge...

    Hard to explain, you'll know when you see it...
