    Default i have just curbed my alloy ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

    well guys looks like i need to refurb my alloys now as im a spanner lol im gutted i curbed my rear alloy a good 1 and its taken the crome off the outer lip of the rim went to turn a corner and forgot that the pavement/curb sticks out a bit on that street, my alloys where 1 of ten sets imported from the states about 7 years ago the company is still going that sold them in the states think there about $200-$300 or so a rim plus vat and postage and import tax id just be aswell as refurbing them or getting new alloys

    I know how that feels, I did one of mine the other week, ONE WEEK after fitting them and because they're diamond cut, two tone ones, they have to be sent off to be re-surfaced on a lathe and can't be done by any mobile guys or smaller re-furb places.
