    Default a sound worst than a dentist drill....

    the sound of an alloy wheel grinding against a kerb



    Got too close to the kerb last night when I went to pick up our take away. Absolutely gutted

    Star Silver paint and a brush. Youll never notice when the wheels are turning. Bet you didnt enjoy your takeaway either. Bad luck.

    My car is star silver, so I take it I could use the paint stick for the body , on the alloys? or is it a different star silver (if that exists)

    the only bonus is at least its on the passenger side so I don't see it everytime I get in the car, still know it's there though. Might try touching it up.

    Can I get 1 wheel refurbed or do i really need to get all 4 done so they are the same colour?

    ****** awful design for kerbing, it makes you wonder if VH designed them to protrude like that to assist in the sales of replacement wheels.
