A heat-treated aluminum rim should never be heated to ease knocking it back into shape. As Steve now knows: It'll be tough as butter once that's been done to it.

A big hammer and a suitable piece of hardwood are your friend. Softwood won't work. You need a solid chunk of hardwood. Don't be afraid to use a sledge-hammer.

It ain't a job for the timid.
