At 5280 Rim Go Round, we understand that the cracks and bumps in the roads are not always kind to our wheels. That’s why our team provides quality rim repair services for any vehicle that needs it. From wheel repair to refinishing, wheel straightening and beyond, we do it all.

No matter what shape, size, or manufacturer your wheel may be, we do our absolute best to restore it to its original glory.
Radial runout, depending on the severity, can cause problems for your vehicle. Radial runout is when your wheel does not have the same radius, or distance from the center to the edge, all the way around. Put more simply, the wheel isn’t perfectly round. How warped your wheel determines how damaging it can be. Radial runout will at the very least make your wheel bumpy, causing your car to bounce slightly and creating a vibration that can be felt in the steering wheel. 5280 Rim Go Round has years of experience keeping Denver roads safer by fixing radial runout, so contact us today to set up your rim repair appointment!
Lateral runout is difficult to describe in words, but lateral runout is similar to radial runout. The difference is that instead of not having equal distance from the center to the edge, lateral runout is when the wheel does not have equal distance from the center of the wheel and the edge of the tread of a tire. Wheels with lateral runout are warped on a horizontal plane, instead of not being round like radial runout. Lateral runout will cause your wheels to wobble from side to side from the uneven weight distribution. With lateral runout, you’ll also notice vibrations while driving. If left unchecked, your tires may wear unevenly and your car may jolt without warning to the left or right.
There is no one specific factor that leads to wheel runout, but one thing is certain — once your wheel has runout, it gets exponentially worse the longer you drive the vehicle. We recommend consulting a rim repair expert as soon as you suspect that you might have any wheel runout symptoms like steering wheel vibrations, bumpiness, or sudden vehicle jolts.
If you want to avoid having rim repair done because of radial or lateral runout, there are a few things you should do to prevent radial and lateral wheel runout.
One potential cause of wheel runout is improper installation. This can easily be avoided if you are careful and only choose people and businesses you trust to handle your tire and wheel installation. Also, it helps if you take your vehicle in for regular tire rotations and routine maintenance in order to detect problems early before they become a larger issue.
While buying more expensive wheels and rims don’t guarantee that you’ll never need rim repair due to radial and lateral runout, it certainly doesn’t hurt your chances. Sometimes, people think they’ve found a great deal on really inexpensive rims when, in reality, the wheels are so affordable because they were poorly manufactured. Poorly manufactured wheels and rims are more susceptible to needing lateral and radial runout rim repair.

Sure, you can find some cheap rims on eBay or elsewhere on the world wide web, but are those the wheels you really want? When you cheap out on buying wheels, they can be incredibly heavy, out of balance, not completely straight, and more. Plus, your car’s wheels are the only point of contact between you and the pavement, so it stands to reason that you’d want something of quality between you and the road.
More importantly, though, buying decent wheels can cost thousands of dollars depending on the quality you are looking for. Rim repair services can be done for a fraction of the price of new rims.

The easiest and most obvious way to tell if you need rim repair is by examining your wheels. You’ll want to look for any signs of damage such as bends, dings, scratches, or curb rash. Oftentimes scratches aren’t detrimental to the function of your wheels, they are just aesthetically displeasing. However, if you see dents or cracks in your wheels, it can cause you major problems down the road. Even the most innocent and minor looking cracks and dents can evolve into more significant issues rapidly. It’s best to bring your rims in for repair right away if you notice any damage to your wheels.
Damage to your wheels and rims isn’t detectable at first glance. Sometimes damage is more easily detected by your car’s behavior, such as a vibrating steering wheel. While a vibrating steering wheel could have a number of different causes, it could be a symptom of damaged wheels. If you have recently hit a curb or a doozy of a pothole and your steering wheel starts vibrating, it’s safe to assume that your wheel is vibrating because your car needs rim repair.
Another symptom of damaged wheels and rims is your car pulling to one side or the other. This only happens when there is serious damage to wheel. The damaged wheel is so misshapen that under acceleration or braking, the wheel that is bent creates drag and pulls the car to one side. If your rims are damaged to this point, it may not be safe to drive on them. Don’t compromise your safety; contact us for an estimate!
