    i have a lil wobble not huge but was wondering if there is anything i can do to get it back to perfect. i had a wreck in a alley cat this past weekend. The hed is a hed 3 with aluminum braking surface.

    Check for cracks. I am pretty sure once it is untrue you cannot do anything about it.

    There are no cracks just one scratch on the braking surface the tire took the brunt of the hit.

    Supposedly i've heard you "bake" the rim back into shape w/ your own oven (not recommended)

    but if you contact the company, i've heard some will be willing to bake it for you.

    Hed 3/Specialized Trispokes, and for that matter, any other carbon wheel (such as Corima, Spinergy, etc) are not truable.
