Your getting a shake in the steering wheel at 50-6mph coz of a buckled alloy?

I think that's what ya mean anyways, and no don't just hit the thing with a hammer if it's an everyday wheel either get it professionally repaired (often not possible with buckles) or replace it. Although to be honest if ya only feel it at 50-60 it's more likely a tyre or just an unbalanced wheel rather than a buckle. Usually a buckled wheel is very very noticeable at all speeds

Depends how badly buckled it is!

The missus done this to one of mine a while back and got it repaired and fully powdercoated again for £60

Personally I wouldn't just hit it with a hammer though!
