    I bought a set of 4 over the winter (private sale), put them on a few weeks ago for the first time and felt a slight shake. SC said 2 of the wheels are bent! I can't find the phone number of the MS owner that sold it to me so I"m looking for a set of 2 to replace the 2 bent wheels.
    Thanks!!!

    Consider talking with a local wheel shop. A good wheel shop can re-round them for you and it will likely be a lot cheaper than buying 2 more.

    Thanks. Idk if it's true but the Tesla SC told me that getting them fixed (which they don't do) they may not be strong enough and might crack?

    I don't have any experience on these rims specifically, but that is a legit concern on this type of rim in general. If it were me, I would go by and ask them, if they say they think they can then try the repair and if a wheel cracks, it's no loss because you were going to replace them anyway.
