I made the mistake of checking the run out on the 5 steel knockoff wheels I have for my S2 project. 4/5 are bad. Anyone know of an old school steel wheel straightener in the US? All the shops I call or go to only work on big aluminum rims these days. t's not just a small spot that is out or I would just smack them with a sledge. These are out of round and wobble from side to side......

Stockton Wheel Service claims to repair Steel wheels, and seems to have been around since the Conestogas needed wheels, if you want to ship to Cal.

There used to be some outfit that advertised in the back of AutoWeek, but I do not have an issue handy to check now. Seems like they were in Alabama, or somewhere in the South.

Good luck!
