    Hi all,

    Can you get just one alloy repaired will they match afterwards?

    Im sure if you get them spray matched to your current wheels and done properly you wouldn't have any problems?

    So just go to a reputable wheel repair place? I was under the impression that they don't match when you get one done?

    If you get two done you can put them both on the same side and the remaining two on the other side. Then each side will match even if they don't all match.

    Nobody that I know can look at both sides of a car at the same time !!!!!!

    Mike good call to be fair there was an 'incident' on the front same side so **** it might as well get both done! It's only money!! What's the cost for repair roughly speaking?

    Are they a standard silver ? or a titanium,
    The picture looks like they are just a standard silver wheel, if so then take it to a good bodyshop and you can get them down for about £40-60 dealers charging about £85-90 (Robbing sods !) And they should be okay.

    If you get some Eagle F1 Assys (and loads of other) tyres they have a solid band that protrudes out from the rim and protects it from being kerbed !
