You bent the rod and the tube that goes around it. I've done it before. Twice. I need to get it fixed.

i took off the wheel, and a bunch of bearings came out....so i took off the inner tube and tire and threw it away, it was like putting together a transmission so i said forget it...

Could you have over-tightened your bolts to the point you bent the rim?

Yeah that's what I meant, you over-tightened the bolts and you've bent the hub.
