    Default Cracked Alloy :(

    Help !!

    one of my rear tyres on my signum design (registered jan 07) keeps going down. After my 2nd visit to my local tyre place, they have found a hair line crack on the inside of the alloy wheel (19" 5 spoke, that came with the car).... but what to do?

    - can i claim on the warranty?
    - should i get it welded / repaired?

    or buy a new one/pair, but where from ? (aka the cheapest!).

    Thanks, Paul.

    Absolutely not in my opinion ....... get it replaced somehow but not welded as you will weaken the structure of the wheel and it can/may shatter on you........ive seen it happen.

    Upto you though....just my opinion.
