    Default Oh FFS!!! Lots of banned sweary words I'm not allowed to use!!!

    They've been on the car less than a week and I do this to one of them...





    Love to be able to say it was avoiding a child in the road or some other such brave hero type thing, but no, it was me reversing too close to a kerb pulling out of a parking space and then turning over the corner of said kerb like a complete and utter muppet because I wasn't paying attention.

    Sheesh

    New tyre ordered from Neo Brothers again and now looking for a mobile wheel refurb company to come sort the wheel out for me.

    Please mate, I just phoned one company and they reckon they have to take the wheel away and recut the surface because it's a diamond cut wheel. £85+VAT and be without the wheel while it's being done. I was hoping to get a mobile guy to come do it here so I don't have to be without the car or have to put my old wheels back on.

    I've got some nice 17" GSI alloys if you wanna swap... plenty of tyre on so you'll probably never hit another kerb again

    I know how you feel though.. had mine refurbed and the wife kerbed one the very next day!

    So absolutely F**KED off at myself at this point it's untrue. I've only ever caught a kerb badly twice in my life when driving and the second time is this one.

    And just been told because it's a diamond cut alloy, no mobile guys will be able to do it, it HAS to be sent away and re-cut on a lathe. So that's it, I'm screwed. Gonna have to get the new tyre put on tomorrow as we're doing a lot of driving over the weekend and then next week have to put the old ones back on and take it somewhere to be done.

    Absolutely gutted...
