    I noticed a couple of days ago that one of my rear wheels has a flat spot on it. The tire bulges out
    A little in this area on the rim. Can these wheels be repaired to be made round again.
    Can you buy new wheels from Tesla ?

    The forged rims like you have can be repaired if not too far out of shape. You'll have to find a shop that specializes in wheel straightening. Avoid the shops that heat the wheels which ruins the temper and is potentially unsafe. I recommend you call Jerry at rimtrue.com 800-746-8783. I've had good luck with him.
