How many people have had problems with there 2003 GT chrome rims. I have 2 bent rims. I was just wondering if it was just me or if other people have problems too.

The rims will get bent if you hit a pot hole.

I have one bent. I wasn't paying attention and I ran over a median. I am really not concerned because it isn't bad enough to leak air. But if I had bent aftarmarket rims, I would be kicking myself.

How can you tell if a rim is bent? I hit a big pot hole last year doin about 50 and it shook the whole car. I haven't noticed any air loss or pulling... Any ideas on how to tell?

Thanks,
Jeff

Just look for damage, it's pretty obvious.

My sisters car has a bent rim as well -- 2002, same type of rims. Maybe these rims are weak? I'm surprised how many people have bent rims...my chrometecs on my 2001 were perfect before I got my AE192's.

If they're weak rims couldn't that cause a safety issue?

Not really a safety issue, most damage to chrometechs is cosmetic and probably due to them being covers.

What do you mean by covers? The wheel itself is actually covered or something?
