    Pot Hole Damage

    Driving along the M74 I hit a sod-off pot hole, and now have a slight wobble.
    My thoughts at this point is Iíve buckled a wheel.

    Itís too cold, windy, and Iím feeling lazy this weekend so not checked anything yet.

    Iíve got 19Ē customs so looking for recommendations for wheel repairers in South Lanarkshire / Glasgow area for when I do get round to it.

    This could also be the time I change wheels from anthracite to silver, so has anyone got any companies they would recommend?

    Sorry to hear Glenn. One thing to check yourself, put the front wheels straight ahead and check they sit within the wheel arches evenly so as to rule out a bent suspension arm.

    Hope you get it sorted soon.

    I do not offer advice, I only say what I would do with the set of circumstances presented. Your choice always.

    You could have a tyre bulge on the inside? This can cause a slight wobble in my experience.

    I wacked a big pothole in my last car, on the roundabout for Rochdale if I remember right, and on the trip back from the inlaws I suddenly found I had really bad vibration at around 70MPH. It was ok when I slowed down a bit but it started to vibrate a lower speeds as well. I stopped and checked and had a huge bulge on the inside tyre wall! I think I have a photo of it some where.

    Glenn I used WheelPro recently in Edinburgh, but know there is a WheelPro in Glasgow as well. They did a refurb and removed a flat spot on mine.

    I also used the Wheel Specialist at the Gyle previously. I’m sure there is a place in East Kilbride if I recall.

    Itís a not bad day today so thought Iíd have a look to see whatís causing my minor wibble.
    Checked the tyres & they look fine, no obvious damage on the wheels either although I can see 1 has been repaired before.
    Canít see anything bent and all bushes seem tight.
    As itís not a big twitch (worse at speed though) I reckon a wheel has took dunt.
    Iíll price it up through the week as they are Anthracite at the moment, so could be a good time to get them refurbed & back to silver. (Although the dark colour is growing on me)
