I was hoping someone could offer me some advice on what damage can be caused to other car components when a car is driven that badly the alloy is buckled. I am thinking of getting a 3 series tourer (my 06 has 270K on the clock and has seen better days). I saw an advert for a car on...
as per the title really. just picked up an 05 e60 with 19" m sport spider alloys and the right rear is buckled.
the supplying dealer is going to speak to his wheel guy on Monday, but will a buckled wheel ever be ok if repaired?
Ok guts, BMW had my car in for some bodywork repairs following a minor prang on front corner.
During the time it was in, the mot was due and I knew it needed new boots so I bought some for them to fit and mot it for me whilst it was in.
Now repairs called for a new NSF wheel and as such, new...
Just picked up a set of staggered style 32 alloys for my 330d. :cool Nice set of 5 wheels (4 + one refurbished spare).
I have noticed the rim of the spare is slightly bent (see pics). Is it actually possible to balance a wheel correctly after this kind of deformation? It just seems...
I had a free safety check on my 2003 E46 325ci Sport when it went into a BMW dealer for a new CD player to be fitted... they noticed that the off-side rear wheel is slightly buckled on the inner rim.
Can this be repaired or am I better off buying a new or reconditioned wheel? It is 8.5J x 18...
wasnt too sure where to post this so i put it in general forum, sorry if this isnt right!!
was forced into a kerb today in the snow by some clown in a corsa, after it steering wheel was vibrating anytime i went above 35mph. Got home changed to my spare wheel and no vibration.
Hi, can anyone help me? Has anyone ever had a buckled wheel repaired (I'm using this terminology in the loosest sence), and can someone tell me what I would be feeling if the wheel is buckled?? Thank you
My E60 must have been abused in a past life as both the front alloys are buckled on the inside rims and are causing puncture alarms and poor handling. Any recommendations for replacement wheels, standard BMW, or off the shelf? I just want to get some decent wheels that will stand up to the...

I have a set of genuine alpina staggard alloys on my touring but no matter how many times I have the wheel in question balanced, their is still a slight wabble of the steering wheel, the wheel has been checked over and has no signs of damage, whilst wheel is being balanced it comes up fine...
Hi, Just wondering if you can tell me what style of wheel this is and how much to replace one as mine is buckled.. I have a 2001 E39 530d. Other than it's an 18" I have no more information on it.
Hi, I have recently noticed some slight buckles or small dents above my rear arches, mainly the off side.
