I have an 2001 dodge stratus rt coup that I bent the rim and can't find a rim anywhere for except from the dealer at $760.00 so what rims will fit?? I have a 17x6.5 on it factory


You can try auto part store aftermarket rims. Alternatively, you can contact junk yards on the internet. Many of them are members of a network that search junk yards all over the usa for the part you need.

A bent rim cannot cause your vehicle to vibrate while stopped. What you describe seems more likely to be an engine misfire or possibly a drive train problem.

Wheel rims are bent


a bent rim besides not hold air will give u a vibration-shake while driving which at higher speed can cause damage to vehicle or can cause loss of control of vehicle if tires are in good shape look around for bone[junk]yards and can get rims probably cheaper than what a tubes can cost you ,

I have a 2005 chevy Silverado 4x4 . How do you find out if the hubs are bent..


Do you mean hubs or do you mean wheels?

If the hubs are bent, your tires can wear funny depending on which way they are bent. In this case, the spindles may have to be replaced a long with any other parts that may be bent. In some bad cases, it can cause brakes to malfunction because the hubs do not sit centered in the wheel. It can also cause bearing failure in minor cases. I believe your model has the bearings sealed into the hubs? it would be very hard to just bend the hub without bending other vital suspension parts.
In the least cases, tires will wear funny and there will always be a "shimmy" when you drive until the suspension is fixed. You shouldn't have bent hubs unless your vehicle has been in a decently hard front end impact collision.

If you are talking about your wheels, the easiest way is to have your local tire store put them on a balancing machine (and let you watch if you want) you can see if the wheel is warped when the machine spins it at low speed. You can check for flat spots on the rims just by looking but it's much easier to see these with the tires off of the rims.

Front end shakes Usually at about 35-40 mph then goes away


If you can drive through the shaking to a higher speed most likely there is a problem with your tires or rims.. possibly out of balance or a belt is separated in one of the tires.. have your tires checked for balance and while they are being checked have the tire shop look at your rims to make sure they are no bent...

Bent rims


You have some options. Many rims have the size stamped on the rim. You may have to remove it to find it. There are several web sites that sell use or new wheels. You could look through their catalogs an find a match. I have also gone to the junk yard and found a match for a car I used to own.
You could measure the wheel, but that doesn't mean that every rim that size would fit your car.

I have a 2004 chevy Avavlanche. When I bought it the vehicle pulled to the right. The dealership rotated the tires and said it was good. Since then I have replaced the rims and wheels. After three...


No this isn't a Chevy problem.The repairs were not made correctly.Never pay for work like this before you have made sure the repair made is correctly done.Once you leave and notice the problem still exists ,turn around and tell them it's not suitable.They know if it's not .The rims and wheels are not a issue (bad rims make the steering wheel wobble ).Take it to a frame repair because they can show you a bent frame and if it's not bent ,they will do the alignment.First give the last servicer the chance to correct what they have done if they are at fault. Don't worry ,this problem is easily fixed if you take it a frame repair center. Good Luck . Please Rate this !!! Thank You !
