    Well this is somewhat of a newb question, but here we go anyway. I just recieved two of my 4 hummer rims today, and on the outter piece of one it is bent..


    My question is.. how do i fix this..?? Am i able to fix it at home, or could i take it to somewhere like les schwabb to have them fix it? Any and all advice is welcome.. thanks..

    I have fixed a few HMMWV rims like that with a BFH. Takes a little patience though

    You can bend the bead back with an adjustable wrench--a big one,at least 12" or more long..the BFH works too..takes a bit of experience though..if they aren't bent that bad,might be best to leave it..only going to get bent more possibly anyway,right??:wink1: ...

    Well i'm thinking that once i get it straight (hopefully) i can install rock rings on them.. It doesnt seem to be bent to bad.. so hopefully i can mess around with it. I was thinking BFH.. but with my lack of patience i would probably get carried away and mess it up even more..
