Buckled two of my 18" RSGT's on my way home from work tonight, not even sure if they're repairable but does anyone know where I could get them repaired quickly and cheaply?

Loc: woundn`t you like to know
how did you do it mate, i think when you buckle a wheel they have to heat it up to fix it, while that can be done, it will never be as strong as it was oringinally, so could buckle very easily again, if i was you i would get two new wheels

The car in front of me was turning right, so i went to undertake and hit something close to the side of the road. Not sure what it was coz of the thick fog, could've been a brick or just a deep pot hole. Either way that side of the car lifted in the air for a bit and landed heavily on the front wheel buckling it a second time. As if I wasn't in enough debt already, now i gotta fork out more money, and christmas is so close too... smack

Jim, go back that way today and take a camera with you. If it is a pot hole the local counsil are responsable and you can claim the damages through them.

Gutted for you mate, i know what you want for xmas omg

Looking at getting a set of Asia-Tec Shuriken alloys, either 17" or 18", gonna look at the difference in price when I go to see the fella on saturday as I can use two of my own tyres if I get 18s. Just means borrowing more money happy

They've been deemed unrepairable mate, a trusted body shop told me I would more than likely have a blow out if they got repaired frown
