    hey guys

    i went into a pothole the other day and needed a new tyre, there was a punter on the side wall so annoyed that it couldn't be repaired as it was a new tyre. my question is i noticed that there was a slight buckle on the inside of the front left alloys and not sure if its dangerous to keep it on the car, the tyre doesn't leak air and the wheel balance is fine but not sure if it needs replacing.

    Any ideas?

    as long as its not cracked then yeah it'l be fine.. pop into ATS or similar and get them to bang it straight, they'll use a lump of wood or a leather mallet, done loads of wheels like that in the past..

    As above, looks like some R8 reps to me, should knock back into place, its minor.
