    Help me find my wheel :(

    Unforunately i was cut up on a roundabout in the cold weather, had to slam on the brakes and slipped into the curb, smashing a large chunk out of one of my alloys. Having bought this car only 2 weeks ago, and obviously having not researched it properly, i went down to vauxhall today only to find that my wheels are replicas. Worse still, i can't seem to find them anywhere on the internet and my local wheel dealer doesnt recognise them either. Was just wondering if anyone could help as i desperately need a new one ASAP!

    Note, they are 8x18s, if i can find any other details, just ask me, and tell me where to find them!

    Indeed they are BK999's.

    You may not need a new wheel mate. You should be able to get them re-furbed by a bodyshop for about £50 per wheel

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    If the worse wheel is the one pictured, that will be repairable.

    If one does have a chunk missing it will need replacing. Pretty sure there are sets on eBay, so may be worth contacting the sellers to see if they can supply a single wheel?
    Top gear also sell them, maybe they can supply a single one? http://topgear.co.uk/acatalog/4x_BK9...0_18_tyres.php
