    O.Z 888 Wheels

    Brother managed to hit my car last night, and has marked the passenger wheel arch and the alloy. Wheel arch can be resprayed so not the end of the world.

    Does anyone know if you can buy these alloys anymore from anywhere?

    Hes paying so i dont mind how much they are

    be cheaper getting the alloy refurbished uless its buckled.

    a think there over £180 a wheel not quite sure but 888 has gone under so not sure if you can get a hold of them anymore. you could try vauxhall maybe

    I didint think you could refurbish these alloys as your cant get them colour matched properly or something?

    Also can you still get the centre caps and the yellow stickers?

    TBH id rather buy an alloy if there still available

    Well i take it your centre cap wasnt damaged.plus if you get a new wheel doubt it will come with centre cap

    as for the yellow stickers you can get them on ebay just ask for yellow when ordering

    when you get your wheels refurbushed you can get any colour you want.

    try ring 888 if they still have a phone number or go to vauxhall with your chassis number and try order a new wheel

    any good wheel refurb place should be able to get the colour match failing that if you go to any decent paint supplier and take one of your wheels they will get some paint mixed up a perfect match.

    thats what i done when i got my front bumper sprayed took my petrol cap off my car and they got the colour spot on unlike when you just give them a paint code

    if push comes to shove get all 4 refurbished at the same time, that way they will all match and then apply new decals. will freshen the whole thing up. and your bro is paying. matching paint is easy these days just take a sample ie a wheel if thats what you wana do!
