    Default Ouch.... gutted does not sum it up :-(

    I hate this damned snow.... pulling into a space and crunch..... edge of the kerb hidden by snow and the result is a nasty gouge in my two week old car and my not so lovely 20" front near side wheel



    Whats my best option for repair as they are a graphite colour and a refurb will not match the original colour. Could a localised repair be invisible? or do I buy a new wheel and keep this as a spare?

    Not HP ps ..... thats salt on the wheel not scratches, well apart from the friggin great dent that is

    I'd try wicked wheels, they specialise in localised repairs and they come to you. Should be easy enough for them to match the paint

    Would be worth trying a repairer out before having to stump up the big bucks for a new wheel.

    Gutting, I agree wizard wheels is a good firm but get a fixed cost for repair.

    Agreed...

    My neighbour gets his alloys refurbed (at £50 per wheel) and he's done one wheel THREE times in the past 4 months.

    I said to him just leave it until winter is finished, or get some crappy alloys to use
