T-Series Need Advice - MGTF Steel Wheels Need Attention

The steel wheels on my TF 1500 have dents and dings along the rims that meets the tires. I assume from pot holes. Anyway, they look bad.

Is there a company recommended that can get out the dings and dents? Or, am I waisting my time? If so, is there a (good) place to buy replacement wheels?

Thanks for the advice!

Tom, I think that TD and TF wheels are the same. Don't know if the hub caps are though, but I would think the same also. Look on ebay for a set of good ones. I've seen them from time to time. Bent wheels, depending just how bad, are usually a candidate for the junk pile.

There's a set of 5 on ebay right now! Needs sand blasted and painted, but from the photos, they look in good condition. PJ

MG TD / TF (LATE MODEL) DISC WHEELS SET OF 5 (665)

Thinking about it, I'd make an offer. The buy it now price seems a tad high.

Tom,

Try the Wheel Collision Center. They're about an hour north of you, near Bath PA. They'll straighten steel wheels for about $45ea. Their specialty is repairing aluminum wheels, but they can do pretty much anything with a wheel, including welding and redrilling bolt patterns. I've been using them for years and have been very satisfied. Ask for a tour of the shop.
