Jammin's wheel thing got me thinkin. Does anyone have any trick ways for fixing bent wheels other than beating the @@@@ out of them with a hammer? (Heat/Freon/Nitrogen/Hydrolics)

Not so much a trick, just some information. A racer in town operates a front end alignment/frame straightning business. He has a die that enables him to reform the outer lip on steel wheels once they get flattened. As long as the centers aren't bent they come back looking like new. It usually runs 15 bucks plus or minus depending on how much time is needed to straighten them.
