The Twingo's NSF alloy has been twatted on a curb stone full-on.

The 6 week old £85.00 tyre now has a 5p piece-sized chunk missing in the sidewall, a chink of alloy has gone but worse is the inside of the rim is buckled, only evident when I took the wheel off.

Going to a wheel specialist to see if they can repair the wheel as, looking on fleabay, the factory alloys are made from unobtainium :frown:
Cars in my care:

2005 Volvo S40 T5 a bit pampered
2010 Citroen C4 1.6 HDi turbo de' explosions
2010 Renner Twingo refreshingly simple

Balls :( If you do replace it does the new one have to match? I'm sure a mismatched alloy would be a good aide-de-memoir not to ram the car up kerbs... :supafrisk:
