    Default wheel damage

    after severley damaging two of my alloys, I'm going to get a quote for repairs.

    I think this is going to cost too much to be honest, and started to think about painting them black instead.

    this is really rough lol, not too good with this sort of thing but you get the idea, anyway, does it look ok, or should I get my coat

    damage is quite bad on 1 alloy, marked all the way round almost and the spokes have got it too, and thats where you really notice it

    happened in a multi storey, was my fault really, although I've never known just a tight car park

    I will be going to chipsaway who do alloy repairs, but will check out your place as well.

    cheers

    Well its certainly different, but i think they look better in silver because thay match your car and look just right. But maybe painting just the spokes black would look good, each to their own i guess.

    Cars looking clean n shiney though mate

    Cumberland st. is the nearest I think

    painting the spokes black would be a last resort though, not sure about it

    the only thing is I bet they can't do them in the same finish

    my alloys have a 'crystal' finish which makes them quite shiney, which was what I liked in the first place, don't want a dull silver finish if thats what they offer

    they seem to be very good though from what i have heard. A fella i know had one of his alloys repaired and they matched the finish very well...
