    Have just come down to the south coast for a short holiday and made the huge mistake of going into a multi story car park (i know what was i thinking) Ive just Kerbed one of my shiny Ronal R50's. To say im in a foul mood is an understatement and not the best start to my break. Does anybody know anywhere that sell single alloys and may do these wheels as i dont fancy buying a hole new set?:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob:

    You can still get that refurbed no problem. It'll cost a bit more than your usual refurb as it's diamond cut but it's alot less than buying a new wheel! Enjoy your little holiday and sort the wheel when you're back. Like i say when something goes wrong .......... at least the car still works!! :)

    Too bad, that's my idea so your wheel now belongs to me due to copyright! Read my post again about the coffee table :moa:

    Thought I would join in on this, dude, dont go satin black, it wouldnt do the wheels justice, they would end up looking like steelies!!

    Just diamond cut them again mate, will look spot on.

    Oh another idea for the spare if it comes to it, a hose reel for your hose pipe :)
