    Any one have any experience or thoughts?



    Is this wheel still good as-is? Fixable? Scrap metal?



    Came off a bike I purchased non-working that I am currently rebuilding (see tag line). No air leak.

    This wheel can be straightened with the proper tools. It must be press straightened, with NO heat, NO hammers.

    I've used a deadblow hammer on steel car rims and ATV rims before and worked out pretty good. It won't be perfect, but if you're careful, you can get it real close.

    As others have said, it is fixable. Mallets do wonders. Its how metal was shaped for hundreds of years and still works today. Should take you all of 15 minutes to do it right. By the looks of all that rust, you have bigger problems to worry about.
