Road hazards such as potholes, road debris, and other unfortunate items and incidents that occur on the road can cause your aluminum wheels to begin to crack or bend. Aluminum is a brittle metal which means that the impacts from many road hazards have the potential to crack and bend your wheels. Another common result of cracks and bends can be from owners attempting to hammer straight a bent wheel. This is never a good idea and any straightening should be done in a shop and by a professional.

Commonly Asked Questions
When it comes to your vehicle, you may have some questions about the repair and identifying issues surrounding your aluminum wheels. Here are a few common questions on the subject that we have answered:
How Do I Know If My Alloy Wheels Are Cracked?
Some cracks in your alloy wheels may be obvious to spot while others may not. Fortunately, there are other signs that drivers can listen to and look for to determine if their vehicle has a damaged rim. Noises and sounds coming from the wheel that are not normal, unusual, or altered steering and handling of the vehicle, and even lower gas mileage can be telltale signs that your vehicle might be suffering along with a damaged wheel.
Can I Still Drive On A Cracked Alloy Wheel?
Since a crack in your aluminum wheel can directly affect the performance of the tire, it is not recommended to drive on it. Cracked rims present drivers with the potential for a blowout or other hazardous incidents that could cause an accident while driving.
What Can Cause My Alloy Wheels To Crack?
Rim damage is most often caused by tires that are too low to the road. A well-inflated tire has more “cushion” area for bumps and holes in the road, while a low tire will not absorb much of the hit and thus causes damage to the rim.
