We feel that this combination of rim straightener features, and ideology, play into the success associated with this product.

Ideas:

Start-up demonstration:

We have demonstration videos available for the start-up user.

Integral Heater:

Aluminum needs to be heated 160-180 degree range. Some folks have mentioned that even higher temperatures around 200 Degrees might be better for some wheels. Our induction heater will provide quick and effective heat to achieve these temperatures

Prior to doing any serious aluminum repair, we would recommend starting in the junk pile at your local junk yard. Straighten some junk wheels and experiment!


Idea's for procuring rims to practice with:

Give them a deposit and tell them you need to demonstrate a repair, and that you will return the wheel. Welding blankets and ovens (when used according to manufacturer’s spec's) can be a place to start the warming process. As did black-smiths in days of old, you will be wearing the appropriate clothing, as well as sweating it out. Drink water! Quick induction heat will aid in the process of warming the rims to reduce the chances of cracking the aluminum.

Functionality:

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.

Cutting:

A lathe attachment comes standard. This will work well with the cleaning of aluminum as well as some steel rim repairs.

Advantage:

Simple hydraulic rim straighteners will not product the results that this affordable machine can provide.

Customers:

Marketing information for rental car companies, automotive dealerships, fleet maintenance companies, police departments, towns, state and city governments are available online.

European vehicles bend wheels. Not the outside of the rim, the hollow interior of the rim that wraps around the brake rotors. The inside portion of the rim bends in. If the service righter at the car dealership examines the rim for cracks, and none are present, The rim could 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. Is it fair? Yes it is fair, when the struggle to raise the money for rim straighteners covers years of preparation by the purchaser - not to mention the leap of faith.

Polisher:

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.
