We feel that this combination of rim straightener features, and ideology, play into the success associated with this product.
We have demonstration videos available for the start-up
needs to be heated 160-180
degree range. Some folks have mentioned that even higher temperatures

will provide quick and effective heat to achieve these temperatures
Prior to doing any serious aluminum
repair, we would recommend practice on a junk yard rim.
Straighten some junk wheels and experiment!
As you will notice in our manual, we
offer a variety of different angles for pressing rims into shape; this takes
away the guess work. As a tire changer distributor, we've come to realize that
our customers will use the tire changer as a quasi-rim straightening anvil;
this type of activity will crack the inner-cases of the tire changer. The main
shaft will be tempered, but the cases are aluminum.
A lathe attachment comes standard.
This will work well with the cleaning of aluminum as well as some steel rim
Simple hydraulic rim straighteners
will not product the results that this affordable machine can provide.
Marketing information for rental car
companies, automotive dealerships, fleet maintenance companies, police
departments, towns, state and city governments are available online.

be repairable. A Mercedes wheel might cost $1,000.00 or more. If a $500.00
repair is available, you can bet that the customer will request the repair.
It works wonders on aluminum when
used in conjunction with some cone polishers, and some station hand polishing.
Fix and shine one wheel and polish
all four for an additional price.
