For the past month or so I've noticed a slight vibration around 55-65 mph. I finally got around to swapping my spare with the right front tire and it went away.

After closer inspection I found the inner portion of the wheel is bent. I'm running the factory 17 inch aluminum wheels. Does anyone know if these can be fixed? My gut feeling is that it can't be fixed

Susan and I were just trying to figure out when this might have happened and best we can figure is maybe during the Belmont run.

Funny thing is, it was the opposite tire than the side that blew out the U joint during that outing.

Got a quote for the repair. $120 plus the chance the rim would crack which would cost another $50.
I found a set of 4 on Craigslist for $200 that I picked up this afternoon
