    3 wheels "bent" on 2010 V

    I recently bought a gently used 2010 CTS-V sedan. It had what seemed to me to be an alignment or wheel balance issue when I test drove it, but didn't seem that bad.
    Once I got it out on a highway trip though, I realized it was worse than I thought. I took it to the Cadi dealer and had an alignment done and all 4 wheels balanced. The dealer told me that 3 of the wheels were bent! They are the polished 19" wheels. I've read that it's virtaully impossible to fix them. Suggestions? How do I find replacement wheels that will fit correctly? I'm hesitant to buy another set off of eBay, how will I know they aren't bent too??? I've never even heard of this before, and I've had Vettes in the past.

    I think the wheels for this car are only $600 each. That sounds like a lot, but it really isn't even you consider that tires are over $400 each and if you're careful the wheels can last for the life of the car. I would get 4 new ones if it were me.

    check the used parts forums, craigslist - you'll find many guys with a long history on the forum often selling factory wheels at very reasonable prices (usually $1800 or less for the entire set).

    That sucks that you're getting burned on the deal, but any used car has risks. Have you followed up with the dealer you purchased through, to see if they can help you out on a set of take-offs that fit the car?

    EDIT: Heck, you might just take this opportunity to check out the aftermarket; for about the same money you could pick up any number of wheels that look just as good as the OEM set?

    FYI the factory polished rims are $730 each from GM dealers.
    Parts direct is less but I'm not sure how they are packaged you risk getting a rim with shipping damage and then have to deal with that.

    Aftermarket has a lot to offer at that price so you should check them out too.

    i get $547.00 each on the rear and $444.00 each on the front (plus shipping). GM also charges a $50.00 per wheel core charge until they get "damaged" wheels back (to reuse the material). if you were to send the bent wheels back then you would get the $50.00 per wheel back

    Sets go on ebay for under 1000. You might have an insurance claim as well, talk to your insurance company. For all you know, you hit pot holes.

    There are plenty of places that fix bent rims. I've bent a couple during track days and had them fixed at Custom Wheel Refinishing in North Hollywood CA. No big deal fix them.

    Hello caveman728,

    I apologize for the wheel bent issue you are experiencing with your vehicle. I understand how this can be frustrating to deal with so soon after your recent purchase. I recommend discussing this with your dealer, as they should be able to work with you in locating the correct replacements. If you would like to further discuss this concern, please reach out to me via private message and include your VIN and current mileage.

    Sincerely,

    Laura M.
