I can deal with a bit of vibration since we get so much pickup on the tire anyway...
I do typically send one set of wheels off to the wheel shop each season to be straightened.

Cool - thanks. So you find they can take the bends out of a $250 wheel economically?

Separately, I was recently told to check my wheels as another AI racer down here has found multiple cracked spokes on the Enkeis. I haven't seen that yet on mine.

The wheel repair is approx. $100, so I have the wheels straightened once and then when they bend a second time, the wheel is discarded...
