Wheel Collision Center, Bath PA. Close enough for cheap UPS.

Subject: [bmw] Wheel straightening, Albany NY


   I just purchased four new Nokian Hakkapeliitta 2 snows for my
Audi.  Very impressive snow tire.  Far better than the previous Blizzaks.

   The tire dealer noted that my winter wheels are in various stages of
bent.  This didn't surprise me given the vibration felt at speed and the
potholes in upstate NY.

   Is there anyone local to Albany who can straighten these for a
reasonable price?

ps.  Back a while ago, I posted a weirdness with a dead speedometer in my
wife's '99 528.  It was the ABS brain.  There is no speed sensor on the
rear diff on this model, it gets speed signal from LR ABS sensor.  First it
didn't work at all.  After replacing the left rear speed sensor, the speedo
would only work while cold.  After warming it would stop.  A visit to the
dealer and $600 and it works reliably.  *sigh*
