I bought 2 rear tires, continental for the rear, car vibrates a little usuly noticeable around 42mph, and after 60, not much vibration in my hands or the wheel to make turns. more like the whole car. When they tried balancing the new tires with wheels they told me a rear rim was bent, it did looked kind of weird when spinning.

Should i buy a new one? Or fix it? There is a shop that told me they can fix it for around 80-95 dollars, its not a huge bent, but it does make the car feel weird slmetimes when going fast.

I have 19" cts V rims on my coupe, they were painted black, what do you all recommend??

On my previous vehicle, one of my RIMS cracked and bent. The Tire would not hold air. I had a tire shop recommend a wheel welding shop who was able to fix it as new. I would take a shot on the repair. I think you will get good results.

repair 90-100 vs. new rim up in the 100's... IMHO Ive seen many rims fixed very well especially here in south Fla where it is ( sidewalk curbs beware here!) prevalent... Give it a shot.. its worth a try. Worst case you're out 100.00.. and then you have an emergency spare.

Hopefully it doesnt vibrate anymore, its a small bent only noticeable when balancing wheel

If I may make a suggestion...perhaps you didn't have a mechanic go over your car before you bought it, and it might be a good idea to have a mechanic go over your car thoroughly. With the struts/spring/ride quality issue, now a bent wheel, it might be good to find out just how the rest of things are on the car before going to deep into the pockets fixing things to only find more wrong after spending a chunk of change.
