    Its annoying isn't it.
    I refurbed my wheels a couple of years ago and after a couple of weeks me and the Mrs had kerbed one each and after about a month, some a. hole made a bit of a mess on all of them stealing the centre caps

    I'm a sucker for punishment so I am in the process of re-doing them again!

    Bummer mate - refurbing one wheel again shouldnt cost the earth though, so dont despair!

    I am saying nothing about not having kerbed mine yet, as that will only incite it. I always reverse parallel park and tip the kerbside mirror down to make sure i dont hit the kerb. If you do that you should be ok in future, it has worked for me for years

    If I did I'd be gutted if I kerbed mine as theyre a kind of one - off weird flippy paint colour and the paint code, if I had it, would be like 827,000,000 a or b or something

    Sorry to hear it, it is annoying. Not so long ago I had a set of 17's on one of my cars and I hit a pothole, rim nackered. So I bought a new one, cost me £125. Within a week my missus kerbed the brand new rim badly. There were another 3 she could have chosen with minor kering already but no, the brand new one got it

    the one that had me fuming was when i decided i didnt liek the rims on my grey golf and went to see what i would get trade in

    the rims were perfect and i drew up outside the alloy place and when i was reverse parking i took a huge chunk out of the rear polished rim

    it was a bit of broken kerb that was sticking out

    needless to say i didnt get as much for them as i would have liked
