    I have the Ford stock steel wheels that have a chrome face.

    Although there is no visable damage at all, a tire shop discovered one of my wheels was "bent". The rim was not parrallel to the bolt flange.

    Has anyone else experienced this ????

    We had a couple bent rims (steelies) that you couldn't see just by looking at them on the truck. We noticed it was bent when we put it on the balancer... We bent it on multiple planes..
