I have an A6 Quattro 2002 that was running great, until the following
Last Winter, with all the pot holes forming, I hit a bad pot hole.
Several days later, the tire was flat, and I installed the spare.
When I brought the car to a tire shop, they told me the rim was shot
(has a 2 cm dent in the interior part.
Since then, the car starts to vibrate at around 60 to 70 mph. I brought
it to the dealer, and they state that they drove it and accessed the
computer, and found no problems.
The problem continues to haunt me. So I'm thinking, maybe the car needs
an alignment and a wheel balance. Or perhaps the problem is much more
serious because of the blow?
Also, because of a small business that I just started, I'm tight on
cash, and I heard of a company in Penn that actually repairs rims for
about 1/3 the price of buying a new one (getting a used one is so far
TIA to all.
