    How Annoying !!

    Over the past month or two I have been having my alloy wheels re-ferb'd one by one, got the last one back from the bodyshop about two weeks ago - had it balanced and new valve put it back on the car .............job done !

    Then last week fecking kerbed it - not really my fault, their was a fully laidened transporter of loading on a narrow road and had no kerb (as they are in the process if repairing / replacing them) and kerbed it !!

    What a pain in the arse !

    I can not moan mate, I've had all four re-ferb'd at no cost to me.

    I've put a lot of business into a local bodyshop - they are very greatful and look after me !

    It's all good

    i know how it feels mate, i got some rims for my old car, reversing out of my drive just caught the edge and it bent the edge of the rim, it was loosing pressure in the tyre and all sorts, managed to get rid of them for a lot less than they were worth, bought some new OZs and kerbed them a month after.

    Got it refurbed and then sold them as i wanted to get rid of the car. That's it now no more aftermarket alloys for me.
