    Kerbed Alloy

    Hi All,

    I hope all is well here .. Maybe off topic but i need help getting my C250's alloy repaired .. After 7 months of ownership i kerbed one of the rear ones last weekend giving way to a bus .. And was well pissed off plus had it washed and cleaned an hour before. Ive been told they have a diamond cut finish and cannot be smart repaired but dealer says otherwise and quoted me £75 + Vat. So if some one knows anyone in West Yorkshire near Leeds or Wakefield area please let me know .. Some recommended me AP Tyres in Rotherham AP Tyres, Rotherham Tyres, Alloy Repairs Yorkshire Spoke to them earlier they said they can do smart repair etc. But i thought ask on here as the fellow members on this forum have an extensive knowledge regarding everything to be honest. Ive attached the pics of the damage.

    Thanks

    Sal

    Even if it needs refurbed rather than just touched up, £75 +VAT is steep.

    That merc is nice man! Very tempting...

    With regards to the smart repair, sounds a bit steep. It's only really a very minor mark, if I was in your shoes i probably wouldn't even bother. I would just get them done properly if i kerbed them again.

    I know i might leave it until the right option comes up but ive read on few forums that once the diamond cut alloy gets damaged they can corrade very quicky .. ive cleaned them and applied the touch up laquer to be on the safe side. Thanks mate :D

    I guess that is the best option available plus im reluctant to pay £75+Vat to dealer for smart repair when i can get full refurb for almost that amount.

    Personally i would never pay, £100 to have that little mark refurbed. Even if it does corrode It'l,l still only cost you £100 to get the whole wheel refurbed further down the line..
