Default How I repaired my friend's "curb rash"

This is why I love people who have super-duper stretched tires

How I received the wheel with this beautiful long flat spot after the tire blew on the highway and the brakes locked up


Tig welding (love my new welder)


On to my wheel straightener (love this machine too)


And getting worked on by the lathe






Almost done


A very light polish to smoothen any rough edges, and VIOLA!!!

Well, I'm still trying to figure out how the zappy thingy on my welder is supposed to make the shinny rod stuff melt onto the wheel...







When I get a badly bent wheel in, I'll snap a pic of before and after I straighten it
