    Just curbed one of my OEM RSTT's

    about 4 inches round the rim is quite badly marked. paints come off and meduim deep gouges.

    Had to sweve in a car park for some ******* ******.

    Anyway... anyone got recommendations for mobile wheel repairers? I dont want to have to get all 4 done so they match... just the one really.

    cheers

    At least you've got 4 RsTT wheels - I've got 3 & I am still awaiting the 4th.

    Hope you can get yours sorted ok, it sounds like a simple repair for a mobile wheel specialist. Hopefully you've got someone local

    chipsaway came out and did mine on my drive - think it was about £60 per wheel. They did a perfect job.

    I just had my Corrado wheels done by Pristine, they don't do mobile but they will arrange for a replacement set of wheels at your nearest agent for you to use while yours are being done.

    Not sure of the cost for loan wheels but having 4 refinished including 1 repair cost 214 inc VAT. They look like new and the finish is much harder wearing than simply painting, well impressed.

    Don't use Dent Devils.

    They simply spray over the rim and the paint comes off if you look at it for too long.

    EDIT: No idea why i said Dent Devils (do they even do refurbs???) i meant Wicked Wheels!

    Email them the photos and ask the question. Mine was damaged on the inner rim but you can't see where it was now.
