BENT RIM ???????

Yea i know i should post this in the SD section , but don't know anyone there . Okay tires i have came from PEPBOYS had them rebalanced once sense new and guy did great job. Took truck in sunday before xmas cause had a little vibration at 70 , so had tires balanced. So were off traveling and tires suck had vibration all over the board. Well today finally get it back to them to rebalance the tires , leave it hour later get a call guy says front drivers side rim bent a little, i say what did yall do he said i had to have hit something which i haven't. So could it have gotten bent by them on the mechine or what , it wasn't bent when i took it there before xmas. I WILL NEVER GO THERE AGAIN

That sucks David

I Dont think that they could have bent the rim from the tire Balance machine

I think it would be more possible to bend the rim with the machine that mounts the tire to the rim

Has anyone eles used the truck

it maybe a tire worn funney IDK

does the rim look like it had any impact damage

I beleive the best way to see if a rim is bent if very slight is to mount only the rim in the balance machine and watch it go around

Iv noticed the wife had a bent rim by just following her in another car as she drove I could see the wobble it had a hARD IMPACT THOUGH but just a thought since you dont trust pep boys and they maybe trying to get out of replacing a tire thats bad

Chances are the wheel is not bent, but they just can't get it to balance. I would ask them to show you the bend. To do that, just mount it on the balancing spindle, and turn it slowly by hand. If it is running out enough to matter, it will be very easy to see.

I could be wrong, but I'll bet the tire just won't balance. And that is a tire manufacturing problem.

They can also try breaking the beads and rotating the tire on the wheel 180 degrees. Then reseat the beads and try to balance.

They can check the rim with no tire, could be possible but you probably did not have the problem before. A different set may make the change.

if you ever get it resolved, I would ditch Pep Boys and start using Les Schwab if they are in your area. Much better service IMO.

Two things come to mind, no three:

Do they mount the wheel properly in the balancer, maybe there's rust or crap on the ID, it sits crooked so they say the wheel is bent.
Are all 4 tires the same DOT manufacturing serial number? They SHOULD all be from the same factory, same mold in the same week of production. All info is on the tire serial number. I had HUGE driveablity problems when I had 1 of 4 from another mold. Tire swapped out, no more issues.
The tire may be "balanced" but it's not round. Sometimes rotating it half a turn on the rim solves the problem, other times it needs to be replaced. Watch while it spins slowly on the balancer. If it humps like an egg, it's the tire.

Heavy truck tires are more challenging, and therefore need more expertise than car tires.

Well just came from the pepboys in west knoxville where i actually bought the tires and let balance them. There is no bent rim the tires had what this guy said as counter balanced , where two much weight was put on one side and instead of pulling it off and trying less more was put on other side to counter it. He pretty much said the guys at the other store did not know what they were doing, and is not sure why they said i had a bent rim. Oh well truck drives great now . Just don't go to the pepboys at east town crossing they are morons there.
