Mag wheels are made of a magnesium and aluminium combination which is very malleable, making it easy to heat and reshape.
There are many things that can go wrong with mag wheel rims, such as corroded bead seats, creased barrel, scratched or broken wheels and more.
Over time this can have an effect on your tyres and may cause a blowout. Repairing your rims before any serious damage occurs is highly recommended.
