    no, i was reversing and everything was fine, until the grid that seems to of sank 3 inches into the road grabbed the wheel into the kirb, if the kirb jumped out i might of had a fighting chance of dodgin it lol.

    all 3 wheels, pfft, i'd be pretty pissed if that was me to be honest. i have just had a quote, i got them on friday, £500 from wheel base, its now going to cost me £100 to have it refurbed.

    ah well calmed down a bit now so just have to deal with it i guess.

    City Powder Coaters in Digbeth, Birmingham. Bit out the way but they do 'em for £30 a wheel, including stripping and refitting tyres.

    I'm picking mine up next week from them, but heard good things before I took them in.

    Mate its one of them, when I got my 18's I spunked a load of cash on them to get them powder coated etc...so they owed me a pretty penny. Needless to say 6 months later there's only one chip/chunk free wheel :(

    thanks for the welcome Alpine. just had a quote from a guy at wheelbase, either £94 for a refurb on the wheel or he will let ma have a new wheel with tyre for £140?? think i'm gunna have the wheel and tyre and used my decked one for a spare.

    "head" I gotta admit, the gearbos shattered on friday and i was pretty gutted, i paid £350 for a recon gearbox and fitted it over the weekend. When i did the wheel yesterday, i was more gutted about that than the gearbox? think it is beacuse you have the potential to prevent it happening lol.
