    What wheels? Or what to do?

    Was wondering what peoples opinions are for some 17" wheels to suit my car?...... - some idiot pulling infront of me and caused me to swerve and kerb and ruin one of these alloys shown on the car........
    Been told they are "antera type 143" however I think they are replicas due to not having "antera" on the rim and a "Racing Power" centre cap.

    Problem being I can't find anywhere that sells either antera's or these "Racing Power" ones - so instead of buying one replacement I'm looking at a full new set! This ontop of the other damage to my suspension etc I've just paid for! (Yeh the other guy drove off! B*****D!

    Any photoshops or real pics welcomed?!
    Reccommendations of good and cheap places to get them online??
    Or even somewehere to get a single wheel to replace mine??

    Looking at up to £500 (closer to £400 or less ideally - as short of cash after the repairs! So cheapest options needed really, as car is undriveable at the moment!)

    Doubtful.......but perhaps?!
    Basically swerved out of the way of someone and smashed up a kerb at about 30 mph! Plus the wheel also had a massive bang in the rim from the previous owner!

    U can kindof see some of the damage in this pic?.....



    As u can see.......part of the rim is completely flattened!


    Although if anyone knows of any refurb places around Leeds / Bolton that can work wonders let me know please!

    Doubt that would be repairable mate! Looks like it would need a hole new edge building up!

    They are not Anterea 143's as the real ones dont have a visable tyre valve (It runs up a spoke and the valve is behind the centre cap)

    That can probably be repaired but it might cost you a few hundred pounds. The rim doesn't looks split. New material can be welded over that flattened area and be machined back.
