    Hi Ben. Welcome to the site.

    I have scuffed a few of my alloys. I'm going to get them repaired at some point using someone like Wicked Wheels or Chipsaway. Other people have used them with good as new results.

    I don't know how much a new wheel is though.

            You'll be looking at 200-300 for replacement wheel and tyre. If the damage is limited to scraping and the wheel is not buckled then you should be able to get Chipsaway to do it. Typically 40-80 to repair depandant on damage.

                Ben your right. It's £500 extra as you are upgrading from the standards. I believe someone did get price from vaux for a replacement 19 and with tyre it was over 300, best give em a call to find out.

                Chipsaway will give you a quote foc if you call em

                    Yep it will more likely be in the 300 region. Chipsaway have done really good work for most so far, keep us updated on how it goes :wink:

                              Had mine done last week at my dealer with a local touch up guy. Charged me £72.50 and the best thing is they did not just spray the wheel (different colour, eventually peels e.t.c.).

                              A new 19 wheel alone will be £275, with tyre and consequent labour looking around £400.
