Wheels on the car, its so low i cant get a jack under it, so i have to mess around with it.
i just havent had the time to do it.

Only reason i know it was cracked is, that i had a flat after hitting the Hole went to the garage to get the punchture repaired and i saw the damage.

Its the inside of the wheel its about 3/4 inches long, and goes right around to the outside of the rim!

Had the same damage on one of my 18's cost me 40 quid to have it welded. But catch it wrong and it will crack again in the same place. I payed out twice got fed up and got rid of them and went back to 17's.

Your old thread is still there:

In fact, if you look directly under THIS thread in the section it's the very next one.

Trouble is with mine, i believe a new alloy is 250 quid
id also have to get it sprayed to match the other alloys, as they dont come in the colour i have.

So only cheap option is to have it welded lol

Can you not make a claim for the damage through the local council? It's up to them to maintian the road surface after all.

Hey mate my opinion would be get another set or pair or new wheels. You have a lovely car would you really want to risk it?

Pointless IMHO, It will only crack again.

See it all the time with 19" BMW rims on E9x's. Rim clobbered, rim cracks, rim gets welded, rim cracks again.

Something as important as a wheel and tyre, fix it properly.

Here i a video of the main road heading back to mine.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1zkk...ature=youtu.be This is what killed my alloy and after putting a claim in saying the road was very poor they sent out a surveyer who said there was nothing wrong with it. Biggest load of rubbish ever. Not even a week later I was heading into town over the same bridge to find road works digging it all up and replacing the surface. So I contacted them again saying my claim was denied and the reply I got was 'the surveyer found nothing wrong'. To my reply 'can you tell me why they are digging up the road and replacing it if it is not bad' I got 'erm erm' enough said will have to go to a solicitor now.
