Combat rims repairable?

Recommended Posts

I know this subject has come up before but has anyone had any luck with repairing bent rims. I have a few lying around that where too out of true for my jeep so went in the shed.

Also is it possible to rebuild the stud holes.

Hi Phil.

I have thought of this and have collected some bits together to make a straightening jig.

I'm hoping to get it built sometime this year.

Cheers.

I used 2 pieces of angle iron. I cut the correct curve for inner and outer and bolted them into my big vice. I then heated up the damaged rim and used the vice to tighten the angle iron profile onto the bend et voila, trued rims.

Thanks for reply`s. Haven`t got the facilities to do it myself but would like to know if you come up with anything Skelly.

Yep I'll keep you posted.

I will also be able to weld up damaged / oval mounting holes and re-machine them.

Give me a month or so as I have my jeep gearbox and a motorcycle to rebuild.

Cheers.

Skelly.
