Why can't a tire with bent wheel be rotated?

catherinetSeptember 6, 2011

I'm having to buy a new wheel for one of my 2001 Honda Odyssey tires because they haven't been able to rotate my tires for awhile.

Why can't you rotate a tire with a bent wheel?

Are there any other reasons to replace a bent wheel, other than the rotating problem and maybe a little shimmying of the steering wheel?

Thanks.

If you want your tires to wear evenly you shouldn't be driving on a bent wheel. Also a bent wheel puts a lot of un-necessary stress and wear on the drive line and suspension and can cause damage.

I may be looking for a couple used ones. Honda dealer service charges $325 for a wheel.

Consult with your local salvage yard for used wheels. Two main considerations:
1, The wheel is true.
2. The lug nut holes are not worn out.

The third item is leaky wheels. On rare occasion, a wheel is tossed because it leaks air. Cast wheels may have porosities and manufacturers pressure impregnate the wheels with a sealant.

After mounting a used wheel, monitor the air pressure for several days to check for leakage.
