Default taking a buckle out of a cast wheel rim?

Anyone know a place in Dublin that will straighten a cast from wheel rim?

Thanks.

Try City Spares. I've heard they do alloy wheel repairs.

Thanks.

Don't you have about 15 spare rims lying around?

I'm disappointed

Pick up a used one in city spares, might not be worth fixing

Jap, there is (or was a few years ago at least) a place in the Mulcahy Keane Industrial estate, just off the Walkinstown roundabout that does car repairs and they've taken dings out of wheels for me before for small money.

Can't for the life of me remember the name but when you drive into the estate they're on the right in a big unit, opposite AW Carpets I think.

Just a quick update.
That car place over in Mulcahy Keane Industrial estate is gone out of there,just some valet place there now.

But I found a company who can and will straighten up wheel rims.
Wheel will be back with me on Tuesday so heres hoping its a good job.
