Has anyone ever banged out a dent in a stock Grizzly rim. If so how would you do it without damaging the finish on the rim any further. Thank's in advance.

Sailorman3,

I tried to bang out a rim(steel) on my Kodiak, and it wasn't pretty after I got done with it! I couldn't imagine what an aluminum rim would look like after good beating with a hammer. My suggestion would be, if it's not leaking air, just run with it the way it is. Or, you can pick rims up on Ebay rather inexpensive,when guys take them off for aftermarket rims. We all like to keep our rims looking great all the time,but when you ride,you are almost sure to get nicks,dings, and dents for its almost inevitable. Even my T-5's have battle scars and I guess it's just part of the game. Maybe someone on here has a secret for doing this type of repair without doing more damage, if so I wouldn't mind knowing myself. Good luck and welcome to the site.

I recommend a hard rubber mallet, that of a chunk of 2x4 works great to protect the rim, and isolate theimpact to only the dented area
