Postby 12honderd » Wed Jan 29, 2014 6:14 pm

I know this isnt a frequently visited thread but if anyone comes across this in the vancouver wa area im looking for a decent place to fix the lip of my steel rim. I curbed it and need the lip rolled back out.

Hammer.
When the only tool you have is a hammer every problem starts to look like a hippy.

Yup, 3-5lb ball peen hammer with the tire still mounted and inflated. You will be surprised how easy it will bend back.

The weight comes off with channel locks easy enough, then alittle tappy tappy, could get you real close. Ive got tire bars, if it has to be worked from the back at all.
