Patented method of safely straightening bent automobile wheels. The SEMA award winning process employs simultaneous dual-axis hydraulic pressure to gently relieve the molecular strain in the metal at the bend site. The process spreads the yielding forces over a wider area allowing for the minimal application of heat. Too much heat will alter the physical and chemical properties of the metal and can damage the heat treat level. Scientific testing, reported in SAE Technical Paper 2016-01-1573, revealed that driving on a bent wheel will eventually result in a crack, which causes low air pressure, a dangerous driving hazard. NHTSA reports over 11,000 catastrophic blowouts annually are caused by low tire pressure. If properly done, wheel straightening is safe and can save lives. Our process is the only one accepted by the Society of Automotive Engineers.
