    Well. Few days back while getting the wheel balancing done, we're shocked to notice that one of the alloy wheel of our Fiat GP has got bent. :eek:

    And, we experience a slight wobble at speeds excess of 80km/h. The car is now at Marina Motors, Calicut and we've asked them to see whether the wobble is related with the bent alloy wheel.

    We're still confused to claim insurance and replace the alloy wheel or drive with this bent alloy. :confused:

    Sharing the pics of the above mentioned alloy.

    yours is exactly the same thing like my rim.
    there lots of wobble coming.
    mine is a front tyre.
    will get it straighted out tomorrow and let tou know.
    the bend is alos almost of the same size i guess.
    1 1/2 inch i guess

    The bent alloy was in the front left side. I clicked the pic after rotating the tyres.

    I'll be looking forward to hear your results.

    sir got the wheel bend removed.
    there is absolutely no wobble at all. I touched 125-130 after the job was done.
    the steering was vibration free. ABSOLUTELY NO WOBBLE AT ALL. they added 50 and 5 weights during the balancing.
    That was the end.
    you can get the bend removed and get the wheel balanced...

    sir thank you very much for your help.Had you not been there I would have been running around the town in the stephny.
    also will try to save vitamin m for the 5th wheel.
