Straightening Rear Rims

Postby Gary Puckett » Sat Oct 26, 2019 7:23 pm

Over the years, rear rims get bent by tire irons. Is there tool made to straighten the bent areas with the tire mounted? It seems like there should be something like a body shop tool made to lay in the edge of the rim to be hit with a hammer. (Maybe something shaped with a radius like a wheel weight)

I've always just used a ball peen hammer. But, that has been with the tire unmounted.
