It would be nice to see how it's bent... it could be the axle/spindle it sits on, in which case replacing the wheel may not fix the problem.

I’ll take a pic when I get the chance, but I can see white lines on the wheel itself, so I’m pretty sure it’s the wheel.

Ah, if the plastic on the wheel shows obvious signs of stress you're probably right.  If that's the case you'll need to call Ego Customer Service for a replacement.

Hopefully the axle/spindle is still straight.  I don't remember too many bent wheel issues! :-)

I have a similar issue but I think the axle is bent. Just noticed it after my last mow. Been used probably 6 times.

Does the wheel wobble at all? If so it's the bearing. If not.. wow what did you drop on it lol

Yes the wheel does wobble. Good call, is that a customer service call request to get a new one?
